JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana civic group's former treasurer faces charges alleging he embezzled nearly $100,000 intended for college scholarships.
Forty-nine-year-old Keith Sellmer of Clarksville was formally charged last week with 15 counts each of theft and forgery and was released after posting bond.
The News and Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1GOMa5M ) Sellmer had been treasurer of the Jeffersonville Jaycees when he deposited $100,000 from the sale of a building into a Jaycees bank account intended for college scholarships.
Authorities allege bank records show 11 checks totaling more than $86,000 shifted that money from the Jaycees' bank account to Sellmer's personal account.
But State Police say the Jeffersonville Jaycees' losses totaled nearly $97,000.
Court documents don't show Sellmer has an attorney who might comment on the case, and he has no published telephone listing.
