A woman accused of defrauding a Memphis law firm of more than $400,000 has pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns, The Commercial Appeal reports. Misty West, the former office manager for the Fowler Law Firm, was charged last year for scheming to defraud the firm from August 2011 to July 2016. As a part of the plea agreement, West agreed to pay restitution to Fowler’s estate and the IRS. She faces up to three years in prison.
