A defense lawyer says a former employee accused of embezzling $100,000 from a famous Princeton University musical-comedy group maintains his innocence.
Authorities announced theft charges Monday against the 55-year-old, saying he stole from the accounts of the Triangle Club, where he has served as a part-time accountant for 20 years.
He was fired last week from that job and suspended from his main position as general manager of the McCarter Theatre.
The Triangle Club's alumni include F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jimmy Stewart, José Ferrer and Brooke Shields.
