Sirens & Gavels

Courthouse watch: 6.25.09

Two former employees of a Spokane nonprofit dedicated to feeding low-income residents used more than $80,000 in donations to pay for booze-soaked lunches, Victoria’s Secret shopping sprees, video rentals, computer equipment, home upgrades, furniture and a Florida vacation, investigators alleged last summer.

One of those women, Cheri Mataya-Muncton, pleaded guilty to first-degree theft in Spokane County Superior Court today for her role in the embezzlement at Mid-City Concerns’ Meals on Wheels, which she directed for several years. She won’t serve jail time and has already paid $10,000 restitution.
