Maybe the State and Federal government should look into Medicaid and Disability fraud for this person. He has been recieving income he is not reporting.

This story makes me absolutly ill. The sheriff stated that he did not want the public to loose trust in charities and organizations, but I for one have. This is taking way too long to bring justice to all those that were ripped off by this man. Just hurry up so this does affects others in giving to charities.

Apparently he is opening a store named Audrey's, maybe they should not allow this to happen. Plus nice touch of putting the bricks in the front window. I for one still believe that McIlvain is shady.

“The public should have confidence in charity benefits that the proceeds of these benefits will go to the people in need,” the sheriff said in a statement. “This should serve as a reminder that the public’s trust in these types of benefits is not being violated.” HHmm My trust has been violated but no conviction as of yet.
