The former treasurer of the Haslett Band Boosters was sentenced this morning to $15,000 in restitution, in addition to what she has already paid, for embezzling money from the organization.
Karrie LeFave, 37, pleaded guilty in November to one count of embezzlement from a nonprofit or charitable organization between $1,000 and $20,000 in an agreement with prosecutors that dismissed a second count of the same charge.
The plea agreement called for no jail time. Ingham County Circuit Court Judge James Jamo sentenced LeFave this morning to restitution and two years of probation, the prosecutor's office said.
"She recognizes that a lifetime of community s8ervice based on these admittedly poor decision has been undone," said her attorney, Takura Nyamfukudza. He added that the total restitution will be $30,000 and LeFave has already paid back half.
The booster club supports band programs at Haslett schools but is run independently of the school district.
The police investigation began in late 2015 after booster club officials determined that money was missing from club accounts. The investigation showed that more than $30,000 was missing and that LaFave was responsible, Meridian Township police said.
