Ex-worker admits stealing $1.2M from assisted living center

WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – A former information systems director has admitted stealing more than $1.2 million from a company which owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri.

A court filing Thursday shows Brent Shryock of Augusta pleaded guilty Wednesday to mail fraud in a deal with prosecutors for a proposed 36-month prison sentence. He also agreed to forfeit real estate, vehicles and other property. His sentencing is Aug. 6.

His wife, Lori Shryock, is scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing May 22.

The indictment alleges the crimes were committed while Brent Shryock was employed as information systems director for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America. He was in charge of purchasing equipment.

Prosecutors say the couple created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices. Among them was LGR Technologies, which stood for Let’s Get Rich Technology.
