A Sheboygan man is free on a $50,000 cash bond, after police say he allegedly used credit cards from the Kohler Company to start an escort service.
46-year-old Kirk Riddle is charged with a dozen counts of felony embezzlement. Prosecutors said he used two cards issued by his employer to rack up $117,000 dollars for a “VIP adult entertainment business.”
According to the Sheboygan Press, Riddle made a host of charges from mid-April through mid-May for cell phones, advertising, cameras, airfare, and lodging for women who traveled from Las Vegas. When Kohler security personnel confronted Riddle about the expenses, and he reportedly admitted to “managing” some women from his home and paying for their hotels.
Riddle is a communications employee for Kohler. He’s due back in court next Wednesday, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
