A Shawnee Mission man pleaded guilty Wednesday to embezzling more than $6 million from an Overland Park, Kan., company. 

Kenneth Voboril, 46, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and one count of filing a false tax return.

Voboril’s scheme involved creating fake companies and billing Commodity Specialists Company for deliveries that never actually happened.

He also caused false information to be entered into the company’s computer system. By doing this, invoices were created by the software program.

Voboril will be sentenced on Dec. 7. He could face up to 20 years in prison, along with a $1 million fine.

Voboril also failed to report income on his federal tax returns.
