SC Johnson officials sentenced to prison for bilking $20 million from company

by

A former official of SC Johnson-and-Son in Racine was sentenced Wednesday to eight years and one month in a federal prison. Milton Morris, the company’s former transportation director, pleaded guilty three years ago to seven federal charges of bilking over $20-million from the household products giant. Prosecutors said Morris helped SC Johnson change to a more economical network of trucks-and-trains to transport its goods in 1999. And he set up fake companies which sent inflated bills that Johnson accountants approved for payments. Morris was fired in 2004. And prosecutors said his replacement – Kathleen Scheller – had taken $400,0000 from Morris when he was her boss. She ended up pleading guilty to withholding information about a crime, and lying to investigators. And today, she was sentenced to three years behind bars. Court records also showed that four other men who set up the false transportation companies have pleaded guilty to various crimes.
