A 32-year-old west suburban St. Charles man was sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday for stealing more than $353,000 from his former employer.

Adam R. Gornowich, of the 100 block of Walnut Drive, was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to one felony count of theft, according to a statement from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s office. He was also ordered to pay more than $353,000 in restitution to the employer.

Between June 2011 and December 2014, while employed at a business in the 2300 block of Dean Street in St. Charles, he charged more than $353,000 to a company credit card for personal items, prosecutors said. He had permission to use the credit card for business purposes only.

He confessed to the charges after the employer called the police, prosecutors said. He received credit for 593 days served in the Kane County Jail, where he was held since his arrest in lieu of a $100,000 bail.
