HONOLULU (AP) - A Hawaii woman accused of embezzling more than $1 million from her former employer has pleaded no contest.

Reports say 49-year-old Tamila Alcoran had been charged last year with 311 felony counts of identity theft, computer fraud, theft and forgery.

Prosecutors say she embarked on a series of "sophisticated and prolonged" schemes against Greg Boyer Hawaiian Landscapes Inc., which resulted in the company going bankrupt.

Prosecutors say Alcoran used the company owner's personal information to acquire numerous fraudulent credit cards. She is accused of obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise and services.

Prosecutors say she then diverted funds from the company bank account to pay off the credit card charges.

Alcoran will be sentenced to an automatic indeterminate 20-year prison terms on July 10. She will be ordered to pay back about $1.3 million.
