Soft on Nonprofit Crime

       by Gary Snyder

They took  $19,127.70 (over 4 years) from Cub Scout Pack 70. They embezzled $4,743.88 from Cub Scout Pack 1 (over 2.5 years). They misused an Action Family Network debit card for personal use to the tune of $2954.21. 

These serial thieves were given two-year probation (until June 25, 2014). If the probation requirements are fulfilled, the charges will be dropped in two years. Kimberly and Kevin Clark are to pay a monthly $50.00 probation supervision fee, a $90.00 victim witness assessment fee, and also pay restitution (which is to be determined at a later date; July 18, 2012). They wrote an apology letter to Judge Kunis and expressed regret for their actions. (link)
