A Mississippi woman pleaded guilty to filing a false tax return.

Lisa Gordon-Scruggs, 52, of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, was the chief operating officer and office manager of Highside Chemicals in Gulfport, Mississippi. Gordon-Scruggs embezzled more than $2 million from the company. On her 2014 tax return, Gordon-Scruggs reported taxable income of $34,907 but did not include the $446,423 that she had embezzled from Highside that year.

She faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
