Charity Fraud Bad Guy Wants Out of Prison


by Gary Snyder

He pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $1.8 million from Hartville Homes Inc., a nonprofit organization that operates residential care facilities and other services for the mentally disabled. Court records show Rohr stole the cash between 2001 and 2007 while serving as Hartville Homes’ chief financial officer. Rohr also embezzled $100,000 from St. Barbara Catholic Church in Massillon and $21,769 related to rental property owned by the church while serving as the church’s financial advisor. In a separate case, Rohr was convicted in Summit County for felony theft in connection with his former Cuyahoga Falls-based business, Falls Consumer Credit Management. He now wants an early release after having served three years and three months of a nine-year prison term he received in October 2008. What do you think?  (link)
