MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — The president of a north-central Ohio booster club is accused of improperly using scholarship money meant for students.
Ohio’s attorney general announced this week that a grand jury has indicted Cheryl Patrick on charges that include engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, complicity to aggravated theft and complicity to money laundering.
No attorney is listed for her in court records.
The 57-year-old Patrick is the third person indicted in connection with the improper use of more than $200,000 in scholarship money meant for student athletes graduating from Mansfield Senior High School. She was president of the Mansfield Tyger All Sports Booster Club, now known as the Richland All Sports Booster Club.
Prosecutors say the money helped pay for costs associated with the club’s bingo operation.
