Frank Winters, former police chief in Gloucester County, has been sentenced to seven years in jail for stealing money from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD).
Winters admitted he stole $180,000 by billing MADD and the borough of Clayton for products that were never delivered. Winters owned the companies that were supposed to provide the goods.
Final note: Good accounting practices can prevent such abuses. Never allow employees to do procurement deals with entities they own or control. Always have a second person review purchases and payments.
