La. business owner arrested in missing funds case

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Denham Springs business owner is charged with 62 counts each of computer fraud, bank fraud, theft, identity theft and monetary instrument abuse.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Col. John Fortunato tells the Advocate that Kristin Koenig was arrested Friday after one of her clients reportedly discovered more than $500,000 missing from its accounts.

Koenig owns Accurate Business Services LLC.

Fortunato says Koenig allegedly wrote checks to herself rather than the companies with which her client was doing business.

Fortunato says Koenig allegedly had changed her client's computer records to indicate the checks were going to the companies owed, but she diverted the funds for her own use instead.

It was not immediately clear whether Koenig has an attorney.
