An audit finds a former Southern University Law Center employee who handled some of the law school's finances improperly kept more than $500,000 worth of undeposited and unmailed checks stashed in an office for months at a time.
The Advocate reports a legislative auditor's report released Monday says the unnamed employee has since resigned.
The audit report further shows the Law Center's accounting was $1.5 million off on its 2012 annual financial statement due to some employees' practice of recording monetary transactions manually rather than using accounting software.
The improperly handled checks and the accounting error were the only two negatives found in the audit.
