FOOD BANK EMBEZZLEMENT
Former executive director pleads guilty to embezzling from Huntington-based food bank

Reported by: Associated Press
Tuesday, May 6, 2014 7:33 AM EDT
HUNTINGTON, W.Va.


The former head of a Huntington-based regional food bank has pleaded guilty to embezzling from the charity.

Fifty-seven-year-old Leigh Anne Zappin of Huntington admitted to taking more than $32,000 from the former Huntington Area Food Bank in 2012.

Media outlets report that Zappin pleaded guilty Monday in Cabell County Circuit Court to one felony embezzlement count.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 19.

Zappin resigned her position as the food bank's executive director in September 2012.

The food bank changed its name earlier this year to Facing Hunger Foodbank. It serves the needy in 17 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
