FINANCE DIRECTOR CHARGED
Judge sentences former Covington finance chief Bob Due to 10 years in prison

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 6, 2014 7:11 AM EDT
COVINGTON, Ky.


The former Covington finance director accused of embezzling about $800,000 in city funds has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports Bob Due apologized on Thursday for stealing the money before Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett handed down the sentence.

Prosecutors had sought a 15-year sentence.

Due's lawyer said his client would fully repay the city and several people wrote letters to the judge asking for leniency.

Due pleaded guilty in March to abuse of public trust, theft by deception, unlawful access to a computer and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

During the sentencing hearing, Bartlett said he saw Due's actions "as a serious aberration of an otherwise good person's life."
