Ex-Veterans Home Official Faces Embezzling Charge

Posted: Updated:

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a former administrator of a now-shuttered veterans home in Michigan is accused of embezzling thousands of dollars and using some of the money for personal expenses.

57-year-old Michael Campbell was arraigned Monday in Calhoun County District Court on charges of embezzlement of more than $1,000 and less than $20,000 from a nonprofit agency and using a computer to commit a crime.

Campbell is the former administrator of the Legion Villa in Springfield. When it closed in 2013 the facility was home to about 20 veterans. Sheriff's Detective Steve Hinkley says investigators believe Campbell took as much as $250,000 over five years.

Campbell's lawyer says Jason Bomia says the allegations aren't true and his client "faithfully served the Legion Villa."
