Employee steals cash from Medical Faculty Associates

An unidentified person embezzled about $300 from the Medical Faculty Associates this summer, a spokesperson for the group said Wednesday.

The Medical Faculty Associates called the University Police Department to investigate the missing funds, Kathryn Kennedy McGriff, the practice’s director of marketing, said. UPD Chief Kevin Hay said the incident was handled as a personnel matter, and criminal charges were not pressed.

McGriff declined to comment on the suspects’ affiliation with MFA, as well as factors in deciding whether or not the MFA would press criminal charges against the individual.

“This is an isolated case. We will have no further comment,” she said.

The Hatchet incorrectly reported that Kathryn Kennedy McGriff said the person who embezzled about $300 from the Medical Faculty Associates was an employee. In fact, University Police Chief Kevin Hay said it was being handled as a “personnel matter.” McGriff declined repeatedly to say if the person was an employee with MFA. We regret this error.
