On Wednesday, November 17, 2010, former Koss Corporation executive Sujata “Sue” Sachdeva was sentenced in federal court to serve 11 years in prison for embezzling $34 million from the Milwaukee stereo headphone manufacturer.

Sachdeva embezzled $34 million over a 12-year period while she was employed as vice president of finance. Sachdeva was arrested 11 months ago at her home in Mequon, where FBI agents seized luxury items such as clothes, shoes, jewelry, china, and art. After her sentencing, Sachdeva was not taken directly to prison, but will remain free while she gives testimony in lawsuits related to the embezzlement.
