Former Milton Woman Sentenced for Embezzlement

A woman who embezzled more than a millions dollars from her Janesville employer is sentenced to two years in prison in federal court.

55-year-old Brenda Werfal of Middleton and formerly of Milton worked at Southern Wisconsin Emergency Associates since 1988, and Specialty Bill Services since 1993.

Authorities says she forged more than 1000 checks to herself in 2011 and 2012 and deposited the money into her accounts.

Werfal owned scrapbooking stores in Janesville and Madison until they closed in February of 2011.

Werfal must pay back over two-million dollars in restitution to her two employers and a Cincinnati insurance company.
