Former financial officer for Philadelphia archdiocese arrested
Catholic World News - 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.
