TULSA — A former American Parking employee on Wednesday pleaded guilty to stealing more than $420,000 from his employer, officials said.

Jerry Wiley, 70, of Tulsa, admitted to defrauding BancFirst and his employer of $426,220.32 from January to April 2018.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office is dedicated to protecting the integrity of the marketplace by prosecuting white collar criminals like Mr. Wiley,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “Like in so many financial crimes, Mr. Wiley took advantage of the trust placed in him, resulting in American Parking losing more than $420,000. There is never justification to steal from an employer, and perpetrators who act otherwise will find themselves face-to-face with a federal prosecutor.”

Officials say Wiley authorized funds transfers related to business expenses from the company's corporate checking account at BancFirst to accounts owned and controlled by one of his acquaintances.

Sentencing for Wiley is set for Oct. 23.
