BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 57-year-old Baton Rouge woman has pleaded guilty to defrauding a group of physicians by embezzling about $430,500.

On Friday, U.S. Attorney Walt Green said Lorrie Lynn Rogerson pleaded guilty to a wire fraud scheme to defraud the Pediatric Surgery of Louisiana, a group of Baton Rouge physicians who specialize in surgery on children. Prosecutors say she embezzled about $430,490 from PSL.

A sentencing date has not been set.
