A Bluffton woman was charged Wednesday with four counts of federal wire fraud after allegedly embezzling from a Beaufort business where she worked as a bookkeeper.
The indictment alleges that from 2003 to 2008, Brenda Mims, 59, embezzled more than $150,000 from her employer via interstate wire transfers, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles. Additional information about the case was unavailable.
If convicted, Mims could be fined up to $250,000 and serve up to 20 years in prison. The case was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service.
