A former treasurer of a local Boy Scouts troop pleaded no contest Friday to embezzlement.
Julie Diane Klein was sentenced to a day in jail and three years of probation, according to Kern County Superior Court records.
Klein used her position as treasurer of Boy Scout Troop 80 and bookkeeper for her estranged husband’s dental business to accomplish the thefts, according to reports filed in court by Bakersfield police. Over two years, a total of $11,447 were written out by Klein in checks from the troop’s account to herself or “cash.”
Police say she then tried to pay bills from the overdrawn account by removing funds from her husband’s business account without his permission.
