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Graham, who has been accused of embezzling from his agency, originally made news when his salary of about $500,000 was publicly revealed.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