CHICAGO | Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has sued the former chief financial officer of a Chicago social services charity for allegedly misappropriating more than $200,000 from the nonprofits' accounts.
Madigan filed the lawsuit Monday against Donald Chew, of Sauk Village. The lawsuit alleges Chew misappropriated money from the Marcy-Newberry Association. The group assists children and adults on Chicago's West Side.
The Illinois Department of Insurance pointed Chew's actions to Madigan's office after investigators determined Chew made questionable transfers between the charity's and his personal accounts.
Madigan is asking the court to ban Chew from being a charitable fiduciary in Illinois. Madigan also wants the court to force Chew to forfeit salaries and compensations he received from the charity during the time he allegedly mismanaged the nonprofit's money.
