MV woman pleads not guilty in embezzlement case

Former controller for RWC company fled when confronted about $350K in 'reimbursements'

A Mountain View woman pleaded not guilty on Sept. 13 to charges of embezzlement and grand theft of property.

A spokeswoman with the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office said that Lili Clay was booked on charges of embezzling somewhere around $350,000 from Lencioni Construction Company. Clay held the position of controller at the Redwood City-based company until she was confronted by her bosses sometime in August. Clay had said the checks she was writing for herself were for business expense reimbursements.

Clay allegedly fled the area after her employer accused her of stealing about $350,000 from the company where she worked, the DA spokeswoman said. The court issued a warrant for her arrest and she was found in Exeter, a town in the Central California county of Tulare. She was delivered to authorities in San Mateo County and booked on Aug. 20.

Clay is scheduled to be back in court on Nov. 13 for a short hearing and is set to begin a jury trial on Jan. 14.
