From Crain’s Detroit Business, “A 78-year-old Flint man has been arraigned for allegedly embezzling more than $38,000 in charitable gaming funds from St. Pius X Catholic Church and School in Flint from 2012 to 2014.
He is charged with a 10-year felony count of embezzling $20,000-$50,000 and three 10-year felony counts of embezzling $1,000-$20,000 from a nonprofit or charitable organization. In addition to prison time, he also faces a possible penalty of $15,000 or three times the amount embezzled.
“The charitable organizations allegedly did not maintain proper oversight and accounting of their funds,” said Richard Kalm, executive director of the gaming control board, in a written statement. “It’s important for charities to have more than one person oversee and control accounts and to conduct periodic audits.””
