The 56-year-old former executive with an educational-service provider is facing federal charges in a U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania for her alleged misuse of her business credit card. The credit card charges surfaced in 2013 when officials at the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV reportedly found excessive personal charges of more than $71,000 on the American Express business account. Many of the purchases included charges at eating establishments, pharmacies, retail stores and department stores that ranged from 2007 until 2013.
An audit was conducted by an independent agency after the board of directors questioned the expenditures. The agency determined that about $42,000 was business expenses. The remainder of the charges was for questionable purchases, and some of the charges allegedly occurred during time when the executive was not working. The executive stepped down from her job in 2013 and reportedly agreed to pay restitution for all personal and unauthorized charges as the board deemed fit.
The board was said to have reviewed and approved the report and forwarded it to local, state and federal authorities. Federal officials stated that the woman did not have valid documentation for the expenses. The Yauger now facing federal charge", Debbie Wachter, July 08, 2014
