Topeka - A federal grand jury indicted a Topeka womam for stealing more than $360,000 dollars from her job at an organization for the blind.

The court indicited Sheryl L. Wilson, 56, on 36 counts of bank fraud and four counts of credit card fraud. Prosecutors said Wilson took the money from the Center for Sight of Northeast Kansas between July 2001 and February 2004. Prosecutors said Wilson used the money for remodeling her home and paying for her daughter's wedding.

If convicted, Wilson faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for each bank fraud count, and 10 years in prison for each credit card fraud count.

Prosecutors said they would also require Wilson to repay the $360,000.
