Wabasha Woman Plea Deal




A Wabasha woman is confessing to stealing more than three million dollars from her Rochester area employer. 


Sharon Schmalzriedt accepted a plea deal yesterday in Wabasha County Court. 

The former company bookkeeper pled guilty to felony theft.


Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of five years of supervised probation. 


Schmalzriedt worked for a Lewiston company remotely from Wabasha doing bookkeeping, payroll and accounts payable.


The 61-year old Schmalzriedt admitted to taking the money while she was being financially exploited during an online romantic scheme. 


Her sentencing date is on June 25.
