Janice Molden, 45, is charged with embezzlement of $100,000 or more, embezzlement of $25,000 or more, embezzlement of $999 but less than $20,000 and three counts of using a computer to commit a crime. She was scheduled to be in court Wednesday afternoon, but her case was adjourned until 1:30 p.m. April 10, court officials said.

Janice Molden and her husband Oral are accused of embezzling approximately $250,000 from A2 Auto Glass in Scio Township during a period of 3 1/2 years.

Oral Molden was charged with false pretenses over $20,000, false pretenses between $999 and $20,000, making or permitting a false tax return and malicious use of a telecommunications service last month. He was released on a personal recognizance bond. He was originally charged with embezzlement of $20,000 or more but that charge was dismissed on April 24 at a preliminary exam.

The couple both worked for the company. Janice Molden was a bookkeeper and Oral Molden did computer work for the company, according to deputies.

Janice Molden was scheduled to start her trial in the case on Jan. 28, but that date has been pushed back.

I've known Janice for about 6 years - it always struck me weird that a book keeper and and an underemployed "dentist/pilot/IT Person" bought new motorcycles, went on trips, had lots of stuff done to there home, etc. I kept thinking - Where do they get all this money? It all makes perfect sense now - if it turns out to be true. I am glad to see Oral recharged - they both should go to jail should they be found guilty. I just feel sorry for the kids and their relatives.

yes, if she has no criminal record she ll get probation , and have to pay the money back. but what cracks me up is, she wont have to pay it all back. I have seen it time after time, in embezzlement cases.

That must be why she's smiling in her mug shot.
