A former executive at Driscoll’s, Inc. BB #:116044 Watsonville, CA, was sentenced to federal prison for embezzling millions from the company.

According to a story from the Associated Press, Marc Marier of Naperville, IL, pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering and was sentenced to 29 months in prison and ordered to repay $1.5 million.

The story says Marier was hired in 2017 as director of real estate and workplace services, and shortly after, he began approving false invoices and directing funds to his own bank account. He resigned from Driscoll’s after finding out it was investigating him.

The company turned over its investigation to the FBI.
