The former president of United Mid-Coast Charities has been convicted of embezzlement and sentenced to 4 years in prison and needs to repay the $4.6M he stole.
"The former head of a Camden-based charity for the needy who embezzled more than $4.6 million from the nonprofit – the largest amount stolen from a charity in Maine history – was sentenced Friday to serve four years in prison and ordered to repay the money.
"Russell “Rusty” Brace, 82, of Camden, was ordered by Judge George Singal in U.S. District Court in Portland to report to federal prison on Nov. 4. Singal allowed him to leave the courthouse with his family after being sentenced."--Scott Dolan, the Portland Press Herald
