Quincy: Ex-newspaper employee charged with embezzlement appears in court

A former Patriot Ledger worker has pleaded not guilty to bilking close to $300,000 from her employer.

Karen Sullivan of Braintree was fired from her job as office manager at the Quincy-based newspaper in March amid allegations she stole cash and checks from its parent company, Gatehouse Media.

Authorities say Sullivan’s scheme began when she was hired in 2006.

She’s due back in court September 12.
