KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) - Indictments have been handed up in Kingston in the wake of a state audit that concluded the former heads of a Tennessee nonprofit misused grant money and helped themselves to illegal bonuses.
The audit also found more than $39,000 in unauthorized charges to the credit card of the agency, Community Health Network Inc.
The agency began in 2002 to link doctors in rural areas through online video to specialists at major medical centers.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/TeTEvG ) reported former CEO Keith Williams was indicted Monday by a Roane County grand jury on a charge of theft above $60,000. The prosecutor's office said Williams' last known address was in Florida.
Former assistant director Paul Monroe was indicted on a charge of theft above $10,000.
