A Lincoln Park man accused of embezzling money from two Wayne County charities has been sentenced, according to the Michigan Attorney General's Office.
Officials say 67-year-old Donald G. McDonald was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to pay $45,650 in restitution.
McDonald admitted to embezzling up to $25,000 from Lincoln Park Moose Lodge No. 1665 -- of which he was the treasurer -- and the Lincoln Park Women of the Moose No. 1036.
State investigations reviewed both organization's records between 2013 and 2014. An estimated $100,000 was missing. According to the Attorney General's Office, McDonald was the only person accused of wrongdoing.
In September 2018, McDonald pleaded guilty to counts of embezzlement from a non-profit corporation or charitable organization.
He must submit payment within 30 days, may not have contact with any Moose Lodge and avoid employment where he handles money.
