Illinois Man Faces Civil Charges On Top Of Criminal Indictment For Allegedly Embezzling Nearly $1 Million From Waste Agency

Christopher "Brooke" Beal, 47, of Chicago, Illinois has been sued in civil court in an effort by the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County to recover nearly $1 million he allegedly embezzled from the agency where he had served as Director.  Beal was charged in March 2011 with misappropriating the funds, ostensibly for payments for executive and graduate management programs he never attended.  Prosecutors alleged that Beal received fraudulent reimbursements over a period of about four years, from 2006 until 2010.  Beal had been employed by the agency, which handles garbage collection for 23 towns and municipalities, since 1994.
