Mitchell and Laura Minor appeared in the Abilene Federal Court few weeks ago to make their initial appearances. Later, Minor pleaded not guilty in a Lubbock Federal Court.
Both women are accused of embezzling money from Hendrick over a five-year period. According to prosecutors, Mitchell, a Tennessee business owner, would send invoices to Hendrick for unprovided services. Minor, a Hendrick employee, would then bill Hendrick. They are now facing a 23-count indictment, big charges, and a long road ahead.
