HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A Myrtle Beach woman pleaded guilty to breach of trust over $10,000 in an Horry County courtroom this month.

Debor Guear, 51, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, suspended to five years of guaranteed incarceration to be followed by five years probation, on June 18.

The Horry County Solicitor's Office issued a press release Thursday, with the following information:

Guear is the former office manager and bookkeeper of Mozingo and Wallace Architects.

Over a period of roughly seven years, Guear embezzled a large amount of money by writing over 500 fraudulent checks to her, a family-run real estate holding company, and other various agencies.

Guear created falsified accounting records for her employer's review covering her misuse of funds and enabling her to misappropriate those funds over a long period of time.

Both Derrick Mozingo, and his business partner, Gerry Wallace, addressed the Court at the guilty plea. Both told the Court that they had trusted Guear as if she was a family member, and found it incomprehensible that she would steal from them considering all the support and friendship they had presented to her and her family during her employment.

While on probation, Guear will be required to maintain full-time employment, paying restitution to the victims, or she will be sent back to prison for the remainder of her sentence.
