Angola man sentenced for embezzlement in Michigan

– A 57-year-old Indiana man has been sentenced to at least three years in prison in an embezzlement case from Battle Creek.

Authorities say James Korson took more than $500,000 from the former Pyper Products. The Angola man pleaded no contest to embezzlement in Calhoun County Circuit Court, and the Battle Creek Enquirer reported he was sentenced Friday to three to 20 years in prison.

“I am willing to accept my responsibility, make reparations and rebuild my life,” Korson told Judge James Kingsley.

Korson took the money between 2005 and 2009 while he was working as a controller, Battle Creek police said.

Korson already is serving a 20-month to 15-year prison sentence after a plea to embezzling money from a Jackson County company, where he worked after leaving Pyper.

Pyper Products was absorbed into what now is Denso Manufacturing Michigan Inc., a unit of Japan-based Denso Corp. Pyper produced automotive fans, fan shrouds and sub-assemblies for air conditioning and engine cooling systems for Denso. Pyper now is part of Systex Products Corp., which is owned by Denso.
