Former CEO of Hartford, CT, nonprofit for neighborhood redevelopment ordered to pay restitution after "borrowing" nearly $200K to fuel gambling habit.
"The former president of a now-defunct Hartford community organization has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $205,000, much of which police said she gambled away. The Journal Inquirer reports that Karen Lewis, 57, of Windsor, has received a suspended sentence and probation. Lewis pleaded guilty to first-degree larceny in Hartford Superior Court. She's the former president and chief executive of the South Arsenal Neighborhood Development Corp., which operated economic and community development programs in Hartford's North End before it was dissolved in 2010." -- Associated Press
