FORMER DIRECTOR OF NONPROFIT SENTENCED FOR EMBEZZLEMENT


Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Linda Lively was sentenced to five years, with all but six months suspended, by the Honorable O. Robert Lidums, in the Circuit Court for Cecil County. Lively, of the 23600 block of Newton Road in Worton, Maryland, is the former Executive Director of On Our Own of Cecil County, Inc., a nonprofit organization that benefits the mentally disabled.

Lively, 53 yrs. old, plead guilty in February to using more than $10,000.00 of the organization’s funds to support her gambling habit from March to June of 2002. The majority of the money was taken via ATM withdrawals at Dover Downs, in Delaware. Judge Lidums ordered Lively to spend the first two months of the sentence in the Cecil County Detention Center and the remainder of the sentence on home monitoring. Lively was also ordered to repay $10,516.24 to On Our Own, Inc., of Cecil County.

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.
