LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The founder of USA Harvest has been charged with mail fraud, money laundering and filing false income tax returns on money prosecutors say he stole from the charity over a three-year period.
In a bill of information released Wednesday, 63-year-old Hugh "Stan" Curtis of Louisville is accused of failing to report $183,354 he took from the charity that gives food to soup kitchens, missions and people in need.
Prosecutors say Curtis deposited donations and checks given to the charity in a personal account and charged $370,537 in personal travel expenses to USA Harvest.
None of the charities Curtis has been associated with - USA Harvest, Kentucky Harvest and Blessings in a Backpack - were implicated in any wrongdoing. It was not immediately clear Wednesday afternoon if Curtis had an attorney.
