Boston AIDS Nonprofit Director Funneled $120K Into Her Gambling Habit

valerie-tebbettsIf you’re going to gamble, at least use your own damned money.

Last week, Valerie Tebbetts plead guilty to embezzling more than $120,000 while she was the director of the Boston Living Center, a nonprofit that provides care for people living with HIV/AIDS. We can’t think of a worse place to send the charity dollars: a casino. Practically the opposite of a “good cause.”

Tebbetts was sentenced to five years probation, during which she’ll have to work toward paying back the center. Anyone hear any good get-rich-quick schemes recently?
