A Flagler county woman was convicted Thursday of organized scheme to defraud in the value of $50,000 or more, a first-degree felony.

The jury deliberated for about 12 minutes.

Angela Wray, 36, was a bookkeeper at Celico Auto Shop in Bunnell. Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Dunton presented evidence at trial showing Wray embezzled about $58,000 from her employer. The defendant wrote duplicate paychecks to herself, used her employers checks to deposit and make payments to her personal accounts, and she also altered the ledger to hide those unapproved payments.

Wray faces a maximum of 30 years in prison when sentenced by Circuit Judge David Walsh. A sentencing hearing is tentatively scheduled for April 29.
