A federal grand jury has indicted 64-year old Karen Duhon of Morgan City, charging her with 5 counts of wire and mail fraud, according to U.S. Attorney David Joseph.

Duhon is alleged to have taken more than 3 million dollars from the company she worked for over a 15 year period.

The woman is accused of writing checks to herself, which she would cash, and then to cover her tracks, she is accused of "cooking the books" of the company she worked for, Capital Management Consultants.

If convicted, she faces up to twenty years behind bars, and a 250-thousand dollar fine.

Duhon worked for CMC from 1999 through 2014.
