A Glenpool woman pleaded guilty in federal court to forgery and tax charges.

Prosecutors said Christi Bender-Anthony, 37, pleaded guilty to one count of making, uttering and possessing a forged security and one count of subscribing a false tax return.

According to court documents, while employed as an office manager at Process Products & Service from 2010 to 2012, Bender-Anthony forged over 100 company checks for her own benefit resulting in a loss of over $300,000.

In addition, Bender-Anthony admitted that she filed false federal tax returns for the years 2010 to 2012 by knowingly failing to report the income she obtained by means of the checks she forged.

Prosecutors said Bender-Anthony admitted she owed over $100,000 in taxes as a result.

U.S. Attorney Danny Williams said Bender-Anthony faces up to 10 years in prison on the forgery charge and three years on the tax charge.

Her sentencing is set for July 2, 2014.
