Giants payroll manager expected to plead guilty
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A former payroll manager for the San Francisco Giants is now expected to plead guilty to embezzling more than two million dollars from players and other team employees.
In a document filed Thursday in Federal Court, prosecutors indicate they now suspect 41-year-old Robin O'Connor of diverting an additional $700,000 into her personal accounts. She was originally charged with stealing $1.5 million.
In August, the Giants told the I-Team's Dan Noyes they discovered the embezzlement after O'Connor applied for a home loan and were contacted by the lender.
A FBI affidavit shows she forged a letter from the team's human resources department to help explain large deposits to her account.
