Employee accused of embezzling more than $3,000 from Michigan Union Ticket Office

By Lee Higgins

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for today for a man accused of embezzling more than $3,000 from the Michigan Union Ticket Office while working there as a student employee.

Dominic Isaiah Johnson, 21, is charged with embezzlement of $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000.

He is free on a promise to appear after being arraigned last week in front of Magistrate M. Colleen Currie, court records show.

University of Michigan police said Johnson is accused of conducting unauthorized refunds on tickets, rendering the tickets invalid and pocketing the cash. Police said he collected four such refunds between March 25 and April 29, stealing a total of $3,740.

A manager at the ticket office, which sells tickets to musical performances and other events, filed a complaint with police April 29.

If convicted, Johnson faces a maximum of five years in prison.

What does Johnson say in his defense? Or does he have an attorney who is representing him? Seems like in this article and the one about an embezzlement at Washtenaw Dairy the reporters "forgot" to give the other side of the story. And if he's a U-M student he should be easy to contact.

Taking money without permission is stealing. Don't do the crime if you don't have the time.

Sad! But when you play with others cash, you PAY!
