SHOCKER: LBC Football Official Accused of Ripping Off Almost $70k!

Stories like this are always disturbing - especially when they happen to people you know. The Daily Herald's Mick Zawislak is reporting that Libertyville CPA and Libertyville Boys Club volunteer, Christopher Jacobson is accused to pocketing $67,000 while serving as the LBC treasurer. According to the Daily Herald story, the club only has an annual budget of about $100,000. LBC chairman Rich Danilkowicz told the Daily Herald that he didn't expect the theft to affect day-to-day operations. LBC football has been around for 77 years.

Given the fact that the alleged theft represents almost 67% of the club's annual budget - I'm sure if you'd like to make a financial contribution to the group, your gift would be very much appreciated.
