Former financial officer for Philadelphia archdiocese arrested
March 13, 2012
The former chief financial officer of the Philadelphia archdiocese has been placed under arrest and will face charges for allegedly embezzling over $1 million in Church funds.
Anita Guzzardi was dismissed from her archdiocesan post last July after prosecutors notified the archdiocese that they were investigating improper credit-card spending. The investigation into missing archdiocesan funds eventually produced evidence leading to the arrest.
