CORTEZ, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors say a 42-year-old man accused of embezzling $255,000 from an office supply company in Cortez is expected to change his plea.

Jeff Dorschner, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office, tells the Cortez Journal that Brian K. Shoults initially pleaded not guilty to wire fraud and tax evasion but has requested a change-of-plea hearing scheduled for May 29.

Shoults is accused of stealing the money from Office Outpost when he was the business' bookkeeper. An indictment alleges he wired money from Office Outpost accounts into his own and failed to pay income taxes on that money.

Shoults, who was arrested Feb. 8 outside his Phoenix home, had sole responsibility for reconciling the shop's bank accounts with its internal records.
