A Lafayette woman faces up to 20 years in prison for running up more than $1 million in unauthorized charges to her company credit card.

HOUSTON (AP) - An employee of Hess Corporation faces up to 20 years in prison for running up more than $1 million in unauthorized charges to a company credit card.

Monica Causgrove of Lafayette remained free on bond Tuesday pending sentencing next year in Houston. The 43-year-old Causgrove on Monday pleaded guilty to wire fraud.

Investigators say Causgrove used a Hess credit card and her position at the energy company for charges including a stay at a resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Prosecutors did not immediately provide information on Causgrove‘s position at New York-based Hess.

A Hess spokeswoman declined comment Tuesday.
