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