Asheboro ex-nonprofit official pleads guilty to embezzlement
GREENSBORO − A former program director for an Asheboro nonprofit organization pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court Monday to embezzlement charges, the Greensboro News and Record reported.
Tiffanie Annette Wilson, 38, was accused of embezzling from Regional Consolidated Services.
RCS is a federally funded program to help low-income people save money on their utility bills.
Wilson was director of the weatherization assistance program for the organization.
According to the News and Record, the government alleges that between 2006 and 2010 Wilson encouraged relatives to form companies, which would bill RCS.
The companies would then issue checks to Wilson herself.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the scheme resulted in loss of $300,000 to $400,000.
Wilson was charged in October and faces up to 10 years in prison. She will be sentenced in March.
