Federal prosecutors have issued a new set of charges against Wyoming County Council on Aging Director Bob Graham.

Graham, who has been accused of embezzling from his agency, originally made news when his salary of about $500,000 was publicly revealed.

A 39-count superseding indictment was returned Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Charleston.

The 60-year-old Graham was already facing a 21-count indictment.

Some of the accusations include mail fraud, filing false tax returns, theft regarding a program receiving federal funds and engaging in illegal monetary transactions.

The indictment includes two forfeiture counts seeking to recover a total of more than $678,000.

Graham, who is also director of Itmann-based All Care Home and Community Services, has been accused of cashing in his sick leave against agency policy and illegally receiving $295,000 from the council's Simplified Employee Pension program from 1985 to 2004.

A bench trial is set for June 28th in Bluefield.
