An 18-year employee of a Michigan law firm is set for trial in November on charges she embezzled more than $100,000 from the firm.

Celeste Stob is accused of altering bank statements for the Tallman Law Office, using a stamp to authorize double payroll checks to herself and using a company credit card, the Grand Rapids Press reports.

The paper says the actual amount missing could be more than $300,000.

John Tallman first reported the suspected embezzlement after learning of liens on his property and tax penalties for failure to pay payroll taxes.
