Aaron Wisenbarger intends to plead guilty to one count of theft and one count of tampering with records, according to the latest document filed in the Franklin County, Ohio, court.

He was indicted for allegedly stealing $1.6 million from Safelite AutoGlass during his time as an accounts payable assistant manager with the company.

He was charged with one count of theft, one count of telecommunications fraud and one count of tampering with records, according to local county prosecutor Ron O’Brien. It appears the county has dropped the charge of telecommunications fraud.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 18, 2016.

“It is alleged that between 2006 to 2014, Wisenbarger faked invoices, had checks and many direct deposits into his personal account, and changed records to make it look like legitimate vendors were paid,” according to O’Brien. “Wisenbarger’s bank records show the money going into his account matched the fake invoices.”

His bail was set at $20,000 by the Franklin County, Ohio, court and bond has been posted. Wisenbarger was required to surrender his passport. He initially pleaded not guilty.
