By Daniella Rivera: ‘Who steals from the sick and the poor and the dying?’: Woman pleads guilty in fraud scheme
Four A’s board member Candace Bell addressed the court on behalf of the organization.

“Who does that, your honor?” she asked. “Who steals from the sick and the poor and the dying?”

Bell detailed the extensive fallout from the embezzlement. She said while the restitution is helpful, the measurable cost to date is closer to $160,000. Bell said more than 500 staff hours have been spent dealing with the fraud instead of supporting clients. They’ve had to trace every instance of theft to try to make things right and pay thousands of dollars in the process for things like forensic audits.

“I would be remiss if I did not admit to the fact that the lightness of the sentence stings,” said Bell, “but Four A’s as an organization is more inclined toward restoration than retribution and, therefore, we acquiesce to this plea agreement.”
