EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF NON-PROFIT CONVICTED OF FRAUD

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today the conviction of Linda P. Lively, of 23681 Newtown Rd., Worton, Maryland, the former Executive Director of On Our Own of Cecil County, Inc., a nonprofit organization that benefits the mentally disabled.

Lively, 53 years old, pled guilty to fraudulent misappropriation before the Honorable O. Robert Lidums, in the Circuit Court for Cecil County. In a statement of facts read into the record, Judge Lidums learned that between January 2002 and June 2002, Lively used more than $10,000.00 of the organization’s funds to support her gambling habit. The majority of the money was taken via ATM withdrawals at Dover Downs, in Delaware.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, Lively can receive up to 3 years incarceration, with all but 9 months suspended. As a condition of her probation, Lively will be required to repay $10,516.24 to On Our Own, Inc., of Cecil County. Sentencing has been scheduled before Judge Lidums for April 11, 2005.

The case was investigated by the Cecil County Police Department and the Maryland State Police, and prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division.
