Virginia Woman Sentenced To 4 Years In $200K Embezzlement Case

From the Fredericksburg Free Lance–Star on 11/17/2014:

A woman who stole tens of thousands of dollars from a local residential substance abuse facility she directed was ordered Monday to serve four years in prison.

Marlene Kae McCary, 60, the former director of the Serenity Home of Fredericksburg, was sentenced to 40 years in prison with all but four years suspended.

She had previously pleaded guilty to four felony counts of embezzlement.

A restitution order calls for McCary to repay $90,381, though city detective Wayne Hunnicutt’s investigation revealed that up to $200,000 had been stolen.

Serenity Home offered local residential substance abuse services for more than 30 years. The nonprofit organization lost its license and closed in 2013, largely because of financial troubles tied to McCary’s thefts.
