It sounds as though basic internal controls were either not in place or ignored if this individual had access to so many accounts as well as account records. That's an expensive education.

I never understand when someone does this. It's NOT YOUR MONEY! There should always be two sets of eyes if not more making sure things are balancing correctly. It's not that hard to do. So sorry for the youth group.

There should always be 2 people who need to sign any checks and the cc statement should go to 2 different people-treasure and vp or someone who has higher power thna this guy had. He just never thought he would get caught.I hope he gets jail time- thats the thing they get probation and comm. service and have to pay it back over a period of time but no real hard time in the pokey.Stealing is stealing and if it were a bank robbery he would go to jail.Usually the people who do thses things use the money to buy toys and go to the casino-- not food and shelter.
