From The Wichita Eagle, “A prominent Wichita woman embezzled millions of dollars from two physician-owned businesses that provide services at Wesley Medical Center, a lawsuit says.
The lawsuit – brought by Mid-Kansas Wound Specialists and Emergency Services – names as defendants Nancy Martin, her husband, Thomas A. Martin, and 11 limited liability corporations owned and operated by the couple. The litigation seeks a jury trial and damages exceeding $75,000. The lawsuit says more than $4 million was embezzled between 2006 and 2017.
“Nancy Martin’s embezzlement consisted of not only issuing ESPA and MKWS checks to herself, but to others that directly benefited her, Tom Martin and their corporate Entities,” it says.
Around May of 2017, an MKWS owner found out that MKWS had been under an Internal Revenue Service audit since 2015.
“When confronted with news of the IRS audit, Nancy Martin revealed that she had ‘borrowed’ some money from MKWS and had paid some of it back,” the lawsuit says.”
