(Greenfield, MA) – Greenfield woman is expected to face sentencing today after pleading guilty to embezzlement charges. Melissa Wright has admitted to stealing just over $455-thousand dollars from Attorney Mark Berson while working as Berson’s office manager. Wright’s attorney argued that his client stole the money out of a pathological need for love and acceptance. Judge Mary Lou Rup is expected to impose Wright’s sentence today. Prosecutors have recommended a three-to-five year jail term. Anything more than that and Wright will have the option of waiving her guilty plea and taking the case to trial.
