The news is out: [The former executive director of Camden County’s Public Service Authority was sentenced to 32 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to misappropriating almost $70,000 that should have paid employee federal payroll taxes, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
William Walter Brunson Jr., 52, of Kingsland was also ordered to pay $677,768 in restitution and serve three years of supervised release after his prison term, prosecutors said.
“Such blatant theft as the scheme perpetrated by William Brunson strains the already fragile trust in public service,” U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine said. “This investigation and the ensuing prison sentence should be a stark reminder to other public servants that they are accountable to the taxpayers they serve.”
Brunson was responsible for the county’s Parks and Recreation Department until he was initially arrested in May 2018 by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on two counts of theft by taking of government property. A later audit discovered $1.7 million in questionable transactions, prosecutors said.]
Just normal business in the USA.
