Maine Town Files Suit To Recovered Embezzled Monies
The town of Gardiner, Maine, has civil filed a lawsuit against Patricia Coty, 55, also of Gardiner, to recover funds she embezzled. Coty pleaded guilty in September to stealing $195,000 from the municipality between 2002 and 2008. She was the former finance administrator for the town which said it had already recovered about $100,000 in restitution. Coty was originally indicted in June on one count of felony theft.
