The former finance director for the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York Inc has been charged with embezzling more than $300,000 between September 2008 and December 2010, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office announced today. Yaasmin Hooey, 35, has been charged with grand larceny, falsifying business records and other crimes.
"Nonprofits are not personal cookie jars," said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance. "But that is how the defendant is charged with treating the accounts of the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York."
According to the DA's office, Hooey was responsible for managing the New York council's bank accounts, recording all checks written out of each account, reconciling checking account journals, and inputting account activity into the accounting system. She also oversaw payroll operations, set up wire transfers for payments, printed checks for the chief executive to sign, and prepared financial records for annual audit by an outside company.
