CORUNNA, Mich. (AP) – A former Shiawassee County administrator and homeland security director faces multiple felony charges following accusations he improperly used a county credit card.
T.J. Clark was arraigned on eight counts of embezzlement of more than $50 by a public official after turning himself into police Tuesday. He’s accused of using the county’s credit card for unauthorized purchases that weren’t related to county business.
The case is being handled by the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office to avoid any potential conflict of interest.
Ingham County Deputy Chief Assistant Prosecutor John J. Dewane declined to specify how much money Clark is accused of embezzling. But Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser says it’s around $2,000.
Shiawassee County Jail records show Clark was free on bond Tuesday.
