Kent Maloney appeared with his attorney, Donald Heller, to plead no contest to charges that he embezzled more than $200,000 from the Lions Education Foundation, associated with the Lions International, from Dec. 12, 2005, to Oct. 26, 2007, having been discovered in 2012.
Visiting Judge Robert Baysinger noted that Maloney could face state prison time. He also noted that Maloney had been the secretary treasurer of the club and that “restitution issues are big in these types of cases.”
Although Heller and deputy district attorney Worth Dikeman disagreed as to the actual amount of money embezzled, a hearing for sentencing was scheduled for Aug. 28 at 1 p.m. in Department 7.
