Hearing set for ex-museum employee in Staunton

Monday - 8/19/2013, 9:12am  ET

STAUNTON, Va. (AP) -- A plea hearing is set in Staunton for a former Frontier Culture Museum employee accused of taking almost $40,000 from the agency.

Forty-year-old Michael L. Sutton of Grottoes is scheduled to appear in Staunton Circuit Court at 2 p.m. Monday.

A Staunton grand jury indicted Sutton in April on charges of embezzlement and obtaining money by false pretenses.

Sutton is the museum's former marketing and sales director.

The News Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1cTiURY ) that some of the charges date to 2009.
