The Decipher Fallout

March 10, 2009 at 4:12 pm by xoanon  - 

As vice president of finance for Decipher Inc., Rick Eddleman controlled every aspect of the company’s money. His brother-in-law, Warren Holland, had founded the Norfolk-based company in 1983. It quickly took off, producing and selling a line of collectible and role-playing card games such as “How to Host a Murder,” “Lord of the Rings” and “Star Wars.” Holland hired Eddleman to work part time on Decipher’s computer systems. By the end of 1992, Holland asked Eddleman to become vice president of finances for the company. Prosecutors say Eddleman embezzled more than $1.5 million from the company over nine years. Eddleman pleaded guilty in Circuit Court on Monday to 12 counts of embezzlement. He faces a maximum sentence of 12 years under the terms of his plea agreement when sentenced in June.
