A woman who worked for a Valencia audio company was sentenced to two years in jail Wednesday after pleading no contest to grand theft by embezzlement.

Deborah Louise Mohr, 51, of Canyon Country, appeared Wednesday in San Fernando Superior Court where she entered a plea of no contest to the felony charge of grand theft by embezzlement.

Mohr, who worked as an administrative assistant for Big Fish Audio in Valencia, was arrested shortly before 10 a.m. on Aug. 29 on suspicion of embezzling money amounting to more than $400, a felony.

She was placed in custody at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood with bail set at $250,000.

Mohr pleaded not guilty, initially, when she first appeared in court on Sept. 11.

According to the felony complaint filed by prosecutors against her, Mohr “took, damaged and destroyed property” more than $200,000 worth of the company’s property over about six years, between April 5, 2010 and March 8, 2016.

“Today, she pleaded no contest to grand theft by embezzlement and was sentenced to two years in jail,” Ricardo Santiago, spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.
