According to the indictment, the couple used Ms. Roskovski’s corporate credit card for $1.3 million in personal expenses, including family vacations and a motorcross business, and submitted those expenses to BHS for reimbursement. Ms. Roskovski allegedly altered receipts or created fake receipts to make the personal expenses appear to be work-related, according to TribLIVE.

Ms. Roskovski faces a maximum prison sentence of more than 30 years and a fine of $2.6 million, according to the Justice Department.
