A bookkeeper for a Buffalo telephone servicing company has admitted embezzling more than $83,000 from her employer to help finance her home jewelry business during 1994 and 1995.

Karen Rechin of Buffalo pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to embezzling the money from Comtel, a division of Integrated Voice and Data Systems.

She was ordered to pay restitution and faces a possible prison term of between 15 and 27 months when she returns for sentencing Dec. 19.
