Human resource director accused of stealing from Council on Aging

A 58-year-old Clinton woman has been charged with stealing more than $100,000 from her employer, the National Council on Aging, prosecutors allege in court papers.

Wanda Johnson was charged in a "criminal information," a document that signals a plea deal is near, with mail fraud in the District's federal court.

Johnson was the director of human resources for the National Council on Aging and used corporate credit cards to finance about $62,000 in personal expenses, prosecutors wrote in court papers.

She also had the organization write $37,000 in checks to an elderly aunt and $15,400 to an in-home nurse caring for her elderly parents and aunt, prosecutors allege.

Prosecutors wrote that the fraud started in March 2008 and was discovered in October 2009. Johnson was then fired. Her attorney, Charles Byrd, did not immediately respond to a voice mail seeking comment.
