GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) – For more than a decade, Shannon Marie Schelling has had a problem keeping her hands off of other people’s money.
The Cedar Springs woman with two embezzlement convictions took an office job at H2Oasis near Rockford about three years ago. It didn’t take long for money to start disappearing.
Owner Richard Brill called the losses to the family-run company “devastating.’’
“Whether we survive this, I don’t know,’’ he told Schelling in court Monday. “You’ve done more damage to your kids than you have to my company. Everything you have done is focused just on what’s best for Shannon.’’
That faceoff took place in Kent County Circuit Court, where Schelling appeared for sentencing on a conviction of embezzlement of more than $100,000.
