A former treasurer for the Lions Education Foundation was sentenced to two years in state prison on Jan. 28.

Kent Maloney was remanded into custody shortly after being sentenced by Judge Douglas C. Phimister, a press release from the District Attorney’s Office stated. Maloney embezzled $200,000 from the Lions Education Foundation, associated with the Lions Club, over a seven-year period.

“The crime of embezzlement, taking money that you are entrusted with, is bad enough, but when you steal donated funds that are allocated to youth and education in our community, it is especially appalling,” District Attorney Vern Pierson said.

“The Lions Education Foundation is an organization whose budget is allocated to youth and education, with no administrative expenses and 100 percent of all monies going directly in support of youth programs,” Pierson added. “I would encourage anyone wishing to donate to the Lions Education Foundation or to obtain more information about the foundation or any upcoming fundraisers, to visit their Website at lef4c5.com.”

Deputy DA James Clinchard, the prosecutor in the case, noted that Maloney failed to come up with a plan to pay restitution. He also noted that a felony embezzlement charge has a low end of 16 months, a middle of two years and a high term of three years. Probation had recommended 180 days, he wrote in an e-mail to the Mountain Democrat.

The case was investigated by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.

    Of course he has no plan to pay back the money he stold; he is a thief caught and only wants to benefit from his crime. He was trusted and knew what he was doing and felt he would get away without anyone the wiser.His only woe is that he got caught and has no feelings for his victims, attach all he has and take the steps needed to repay the money he took.
