Report: Former Woodruff Arts Center employee guilty in embezzlement case
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -
A former Woodruff Arts Center employee pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $1.1 million while serving as Woodruff's director of facilities.
Ralph Clark, 42, could receive a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said Clark was authorized to approve vendor contracts up to $50,000. While carrying out these duties between November 2005 and October 2012, Clark embezzled more than $1.1 million from the Woodruff Arts Center.
Clark embezzled the money by submitting. He would then pick the checks up in person and deposit them into accounts on which he had signatory authority, according to court documents.
Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 7, 2013, at 2:30 p.m. before United States District Judge Julie E. Carnes.
