Former City Treasurer pleads no contest

Posted

STANDISH - Former Standish City Treasurer Melissa McAllister plead no contest to embezzlement charges on April 15 in Arenac County's 81st District Court.

McAllister, along with former Standish City Manager Tori Kelly, allegedly made several illegal fund transfers and misappropriated tax dollars while working for the city.

In May 2008, both were suspended by the Standish City Council with pay and in October of last year, the council officially fired both employees.

A pretrial hearing for Kelly is scheduled in May. The pretrial hearing for the former manager has been postponed numerous times to date.
