ST. LOUIS -- The former office manager of a temporary employment business has been indicted by a federal grand jury for false billings amounting to $278,000, U.S. Attorney Ray Gruender said Friday.

Linda Sykora, 40, of St. Louis County, could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Restitution is mandatory.

Sykora managed a St. Louis County office of Crown Services Inc. from October 1998 to March 1999. The business provides temporary workers for several clients.

Sykora allegedly received about $14,000 in bonuses she should not have received.
