Leaders at Kentucky Harvest say the organization is going strong more than a year after its founder was charged with taking money from a separate charity.
Curtis founded both Kentucky Harvest and USA Harvest. Prosecutors have said he took no money from Kentucky Harvest. Even so, Eric Churchill, Kentucky Harvest's senior vice president of development, says there initially "was a presumed guilt by association."
Curtis has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of tax evasion, mail fraud and money laundering related to USA Harvest. His trial is set for July 8.
