Ohio Woman Pleads Guilty & Gets Sentenced For Embezzling Nearly $237 From Local YMCA

Caroline Y. Hawley
Caroline Y. Hawley, 59, of North Canton, Ohio has plead guilty to embezzling nearly $237,000 from the North Canton YMCA where she had been employed in an unspecified capacity.  Subsequent to her plea agreement, Hawley was sentenced to 2 years in prison.  According to prosecutors, over a period of nearly 8 years, from January 2004 through November 2011, Hawley siphoned funds from the non-profit for her own benefit.  Specifically, Hawley plead guilty to one count of aggravated theft.  Hawley was originally charged this past January. 

Authors note: Hawley presumably held a bookkeeping position and probably wrote fraudulent checks for her own benefit.  If anyone knows the specifics in this case, please let us know.

Update (8/30/12): Hawley was sentenced to 2 years in prison.
