Cold Hollow bookkeeper admits to embezzlement

Posted: Updated:

An iconic Vermont business is the victim of an embezzlement scheme.

Federal prosecutors say 47-year-old Michelle Rutledge pleaded guilty Monday to wire fraud.

Authorities say the Berlin woman was the longtime bookkeeper for Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury. Rutledge embezzled about $120,000 from the business between 2007 and 2013 by using the company credit card to pay her personal expenses.

Rutledge also admitted to stealing from the Harwood Youth Hockey Association during the 2 years she was treasurer.

Rutledge was released on court ordered conditions. She'll be sentenced in May.
