Mark Brixey, the former bookstore director of Missouri State University, admitted in court Tuesday that he stole $1.16 million from the institution, The News-Leader reported. Brixey made the admission in pleading guilty to charges of wire fraud, money laundering and filing a false income tax return. The university expects to recover most of the money, largely due to an employee theft insurance policy.
