The former director of the Solon Center for the Arts has been indicted for charges of theft in office and tampering with records, reports The Plain Dealer.
According to a recent article, Prasser, 61, was indicted by a Cuyahoga County court after she was accused of directing city employees to do work – often using city equipment – for a nonprofit that supported the arts center.
Prasser resigned from her job as SCA director last year. The arts center and Prasser has since become subject of an investigation by the city after officials announced that "financial irregularities" were found at the arts center.
City officials have not commented on that investigation and no findings have been released.
But public records, including correspondence between Prasser and administration officials, have shed some light on the city's allegations against Prasser, which include mismanagement of employee timecards, improper use of city property and improper financial mingling between the city-run arts center and the private Friends of the Solon Center for the Arts group.
