Sorority board president accused of embezzlement in California

A former University of the Pacific student is being accused of embezzling thousands of dollars from her sorority as the board's president. San Joaquin County prosecutors say an arrest warrant has been obtained for 39-year-old Lina Lee of Union City on suspicion of taking as much as $114,507 from the university's Iota Gamma chapter of Alpha Phi. Prosecutors have charged Lee with grand theft and falsifying corporate books. The arrest warrant says Lee told Stockton police that she paid her landscaper, made personal loans from the sorority's bank and wrote checks to cash while keeping the chapter's books. The warrant says she told a detective she used the sorority's money because "it was more convenient" than using her own, and she may have "lost track" of how much she took.
