BREAKING: Jury Indicts Three People On Embezzling $2.5 Million From Vassar

The Vassar embezzlement case went to trial today and according to Mid Hudson News, the results are quite surprising. The jury indicted not two, but three people on charges of embezzlement. Further, the amount of money was not $1.98 as previously believed, but $2.5 million.

In addition to the Fishers, Christopher DeSanto, 31, of Ossining was also indicted.

The jury charged the Fishers with grand larceny in the first degree. Arthur Fisher also got grand larceny in the second degree.

The issue of Arthur Fisher's illegal firearms and law enforcement paraphenalia was not decided on. He remains charged with 8 counts of forgery and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
