FAIRMONT STATE-EMBEZZLEMENT
Former Fairmont State vice president sentenced for embezzling from university

Reported by: Associated Press
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 1:22 PM EDT
ELKINS, W.Va.


A former Fairmont State University official will spend more than three years in prison for embezzling from the school.

David A. Tamm pleaded guilty in January to embezzling from a state agency receiving federal funds. He also admitted falsely reporting less income than he received on his 2012 federal income tax return.

The Exponent Telegram reports that the 45-year-old Parkersburg resident was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Elkins to 46 months in prison.

Prosecutors say Tamm used various methods to buy computer switches and then resold them for cash.

Tamm had served as vice president and the university's chief information officer since 2008. His employment was terminated in April 2013.
