Lincoln Woman Convicted Of Embezzlement

A Lincoln woman has been convicted of embezzling nearly $155,000 from a marketing company she helped create.

Forty-year-old Tammy Schomaker pleaded no contest to stealing $154,937 from Synerg Marketing between July 2006 and March 2009.

Prosecutors say Schomaker used the company's bookkeeping software to write checks to herself and make it look as if the payments were going to creditors.

Company officials discovered the payments after Schomaker stopped managing Synerg Marketing's finances.

Schomaker is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 8.

Schomaker was previously charged with the same crime in 2009, but that case was dismissed before it progressed very far. Online court records don't explain why that case was dismissed after the preliminary hearing.

Prosecutors refiled the theft by deception charge against her in early 2011.
