Maloney sentencing pushed back

By From page A4 | August 30, 2013

A man who pleaded guilty to embezzling from a non-profit organization had his sentencing hearing postponed.

In a blink-and-miss-it hearing, deputy district attorney Vicki Ashworth told Judge Douglas Phimister that deputy district attorney James Clinchard and defense attorney Donald Heller agreed to postpone Kent Maloney’s sentencing hearing. It was rescheduled for Oct. 7 at 1 p.m. Clinchard, Heller and Maloney were all absent in court.

Maloney, 69, was arrested for  embezzling $275,000 — though defense and prosecution do not agree to the amount — over a seven-year period from the Lions Education Foundation, associated with the Lions Club. Maloney is a former treasurer of the organization.

Visiting Judge Robert Baysinger noted at an earlier hearing 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.”
