Former Carterville, Illinois school official indicted on embezzlement charges

A former Carterville school official was indicted Friday on embezzlement and other charges.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Springfield division, Todd Ryan Frazier, 30, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was indicted by a grand jury on Friday and charged in a 16-count indictment.

US Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced that Frazier was indicted on the following 16-counts:

-Counts 1—3, embezzlement and theft from the Carterville School District—a unit of local    government that received federal funds

-Counts 4—13, wire fraud in furtherance of a scheme to defraud the Carterville School District

-Count 14, false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation

-Count 15, attempting to access a computer of a financial institution without authorization

-Count 16, uttering a forged check of the Carterville School District

The FBI says Frazier defrauded the Carterville School District between August and February 2012.

Frazier was the treasurer and payroll officer for the district.

Frazier reportedly also lied to the FBI and said that had not taken money from the district, or made false entries in the payroll system.

The offenses each carry a total statutory maximum sentence of up to 250 years in prison, a fine of up to $3,400,000 and mandatory restitution
