The Chicago Sun-Times has reported that Roy McCampbell, (pictured left), a former village manager and chief financial officer for the Village of Bellwood, was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $100,000 in restitution on Nov. 30 by Cook County Judge Timothy James Joyce.
According to the Sun-Times, McCampbell was arrested in 2012 for a range of alleged crimes, including “numerous unauthorized pay raises” that amounted to “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in taxpayer money that flowed to McCampbell’s pockets.
McCampbell also allegedly “used illicit taxpayer funds to boost his pension and “fraudulently expanded the village’s health insurance plan to pay for a variety of treatments for his family, including horse therapy for his children,” the Sun-Times reports.
The former Bellwood official pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft. To read the full Sun-Times article on McCampbell’s sentencing, click here. VFP
