A day care director faces seven counts of felony embezzlement and 46 counts misdemeanor embezzlement.


Janesville Police arrested Deborah L. Wright after Faith Lutheran Church reported its day care center, Faith's Little Friends Day Care, was a victim of embezzlement. Police investigation reveals Wright embezzled more than $50,000 from 2006 through 2008. Police say Wright used the money for personal vacations, mortgage payments and other personal expenses.


The thefts came to light after an audit of the day care accounts.
