School bookkeeper charged with embezzling funds


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A former bookkeeper at Saint Gabriel the Archangel Church and School in Louisville has been charged with embezzling $83,191 in funds from the parish by means of wire fraud.

A federal grand jury indicted 47-year-old Tammy Goodlett on Thursday.

The panel alleged that Goodlett devised a scheme starting in August 2010 to transfer funds from Saint Gabriel’s bank account to her own bank accounts, make unauthorized credit card expenditures and manipulate financial records to make unpaid debts appear paid.

If convicted at trial, Goodlett could be sentenced to no more than 20 years in prison, could be fined no more than $250,000 and serve no more than three years of supervised release.

Court records did not list an attorney for Goodlett.
