On Monday, a Fayette County judge ruled that Bendrea Wilson, the former book keeper for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, who allegedly forged the signatures of officials on personal checks, must pay back $435,837.68.

In addition Wilson will have to pay a 12 percent interest rate per year.

The interest payment alone will be $52,300.

Wilson has already signed the deed to her home in Masterson Station to the non-profit organization.

27 NEWSFIRST reported the transfer of property last week, saying her home was worth $142,000.

Both parties are now looking to see what other assets can be used to help pay back the debt.

While this does take care of the financial lawsuit, the FBI is currently investigating to see if criminal charges will apply in this case.
