A Salt Lake City law firm employee is accused of embezzling more than $155,000 from her employer.

The 49-year-old Lake Point woman allegedly deposited 36 checks, with a cumulative value of $155,300 into two different Zions Banks accounts belonging to the woman and her husband between Feb. 18, 2008, and Nov. 23, 2010, according to charges filed Thursday in 3rd District Court.

The law firm, Richards Brant Miller Nelson, first noticed the missing funds after an audit revealed the employee had apparently been submitting fictitious invoices for consulting services performed by two people, charges state. The law firm's records indicated, however, that no consulting fees were due to those individuals, charges state.

Authorities said they reviewed bank surveillance video and compared that to the woman's driver license photo and said the two images appeared to match.
