Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language be not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success.” Confugius
As I read an article about the cousins CrimeDivas of today, I was surprised to learn that embezzlement is now referred to as ‘misapplication.’ Is that suppose to make it sound less serious? I am in agreement with Confucius . . . Call it want it is, there’s no need for the confusion.
Cousins, Pamela Loving, 69, and Helen Williams, 59, of Flint, MI both plead guilty in federal court to one count of “misapplication.” Ms. Loving was the CEO of a job training organization referred to as Career Alliance. She admitted to taking money, $78,000, for her own personal use and to pay for training sessions for people who did not work for Career Alliance.
According to court documents, Ms. Williams, was executive director of Flint Family Road, an organization started with the goal of reducing infant deaths by better preparing parents to be mothers and fathers. She admitted to embezzling more than $88,000 by falsifying invoices to get money from Career Alliance contractors for services she never provided. The Flint Family Road was housed in the Career Alliance’s Ruether Center. and was not charged rent. Ms. William also served on the Flint school board for seven years, before resigning in 2001.
Both women could face up to 16 months in federal prison.
