BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Prosecutors allege a former finance director for a Baton Rouge nonprofit took money intended to provide computer training to community action agencies for the benefit of low-income Louisiana residents.
Kiamani A. Beasley was charged Wednesday for her alleged embezzlement of more than $50,857 from the agency.
Beasley is accused of taking that money from more than $10.8 million provided by federal agencies to the Louisiana Association of Community Action Partners Inc., or LACAP, between April 2009 and November 2011.
She is charged with one count of embezzlement from a federally-funded entity. That charge is contained in a bill of information that was filed by U.S. Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux Jr.
It was unclear whether Beasley has an attorney.
