Former archdiocesan accountant pleads guilty on embezzlement charges

Catholic World News - May 16, 2013

A former accountant for the Archdiocese of St. Paul, Minnesota, has pleaded guilty to charges of embezzling $670,000 in archdiocesan funds.

Scott Joseph Domeier, who worked for the archdiocese for 17 years, was removed from his post in January 2012 after his abuse of a credit-card account came to light. He was eventually accused of using archdiocesan funds to pay his personal bills and his children’s school tuition.
