Central Parking worker guilty of stealing $1.9 million

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A former treasury analyst for Central Parking Corp. has pleaded guilty to wire fraud related to her embezzlement of more than $1.9 million from the Nashville-based company.

The U.S. attorney's office for the Middle District of Tennessee said in a statement that 51-year-old Mary Harris of Pleasant View fraudulently transferred Central Parking funds to her own bank account and the bank accounts of relatives between August 2004 and August 2009.

She then tried to cover up the transfers by making fraudulent accounting entries in Central Parking's ledger and creating false e-mails.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24.

In addition to her guilty plea on Monday, Harris agreed to forfeit all money and property traceable to her crime.
