Ohio Man Sentenced For Embezzling $215K From Healthcare Educational Institution

From the News-Herald on 12/5/2014:

A Concord Township man who was a former director of an anesthesiology school was sentenced on Dec. 5 to two years in prison for embezzlement.

Paul Blakeley, 59, pleaded guilty in September to embezzling $215,760 from the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Nursing Anesthesiology School, said U.S. Attorney Steven M. Dettelbach in a news release.

As the school’s former director, Blakeley issued about 110 checks from the school’s accounts without authorization and made them payable to his spouse, merchants and credit card companies, Dettelbach said.

On about 50 of the checks, he “forged the payee’s endorsement before depositing them into his personal bank account.”
