A former employee at YMCA organizations in Westchester and Fairfield counties may avoid prison time after admitting to stealing nearly $200,000 from her employer.
Lee Ann Borg, 31, a former employee of the Rye and Greenwich YMCA pleaded guilty in Westchester County Court to stealing $195,157.58 from the Rye YMCA when she was employed.
Borg admitted to making personal purchases with her Rye YMCA corporate credit card. Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. said that as a former senior program manager at the YMCA, Borg was authorized to make purchases for the organization’s programs and events.
Scarpino said that Borg abused that power by making personal purchases from retail stores for items such as prescription medication, clothing and other personal items as well as several thousand dollars in gift cards deposited into her PayPal account for her personal use.
The YMCA was alerted to the misappropriated funds and reported it the Scarpino’s office earlier this year, launching an investigation. Borg was arrested on Feb. 26 by the Westchester County District Attorney’s Criminal Investigators.
Borg pleaded guilty to third-degree grand larceny, a felony. She remains free on bail and was ordered to pay full restitution. If she failed to comply with that order, she will serve time in state prison. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 7 next year.
