LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Sullivan University employee is charged with stealing more than $14,000 from the school.
According to a Louisville Metro Police citation reported in The Courier-Journal, 34-year-old Jazi Sokolow gave a statement admitting to embezzling university money (http://cjky.it/rMlAEz).
Sokolow worked at the school for about a year and a half as an administrative assistant. She was fired on Thursday, the same day she was arrested.
The police citation says that for more than a year Sokolow used a school credit/debit card without authorization to make personal purchases and cash withdrawals.
Sullivan spokesman Thom Whittinghill would not say how the purchases were discovered but said school officials are saddened by the allegations.
Sokolow does not have a listed phone number. She is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday in Jefferson District Court.
