Ex-VCU worker gets 3 years for embezzling

By Washington Post editors

A former Virginia Commonwealth University employee convicted of embezzling from a school community-outreach program has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that 40-year-old Lisa Durham of Petersburg was sentenced Tuesday in Richmond Circuit Court.

Durham formerly was the coordinator of a VCU program that provides rent, utility and prescription-drug assistance to chronically and terminally ill patients.

She pleaded guilty in July to six counts of embezzlement. Prosecutors say she took $144,000 over three years from the program.

She apologized Tuesday in court.
