Auction To Be Held In Florida Church Lady's $500+K Embezzlement Case
Roseanne Stone, 51, of Tallahassee, Florida, who has plead guilty to embezzling more than $500,000 from the Episcopal Church of the Advent over a four year period, will be sentenced on February 18, 2009. The church plans an auction of storage units full of antiques, jewelry and other goods Stone purchased with the ill-gotten funds.

According to court pleadings, Stone siphoned funds from three separate church accounts and proceeded to fill three storage units full of luxury items and antiques purchased with the funds.
