Last updated 7 years ago

AZCentral has a very interesting article on a nun who committed an embezzlement crime of over 1 million dollars. Below is a clip from the article:

"NEW YORK - The nun who was Iona College's top financial officer has been formally charged with embezzling $1.2 million over the past decade, federal prosecutors announced Thursday night.

Marie E. Thornton is accused of diverting money from the college for her personal use by using false vendor invoices and submitting credit card bills for personal expenses to be paid by Iona, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

The college issued a statement Thursday night calling the U.S. attorney's figure of $1.2 million "significantly inaccurate" but would not elaborate."
