NPTtv Summary: Another Nonprofit Manager Gets Jail Time

Not long after Robert Jones was sentenced to prison, another nonprofit manager has been sent to the slammer.  Sheila Kitchens, former book-keeper for Covenant Counseling and Family Resource Center, was sentenced to three years in prison for computer theft and several counts of first-degree forgery.  It certainly looks like March is not a good month to be a manager at a non-profit.

There really isn't too much to say here, other than to tell you more about the crime.  It is said that Ms. Kitchens stole nearly $75,000 over three years from the Snellville, GA organization. Police also say that she doctored checks so that it appeared they never arrived between the three year period (specifically, January of 2007 through October of 209).
Believe it or not, there is actually some good news that has come out of this (besides a criminal going to jail, of course).  The residents of Snellville, unhappy to see a great local organization going through these hard times, worked together to donate money to help Covenant recoup the amount of money and resources it lost.
