Ohioan sentenced in developmental center theft

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A former business administrator of a center for developmentally disabled adults in southwest Ohio has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing more than $400,000 from the facility.

Montgomery County’s prosecutor says 46-year-old Douglas Carter of Gahanna was sentenced Friday on 15 felonies. They included aggravated theft, theft in office, forgery, money laundering and tampering with government records.

Carter also was ordered to pay more than $400,000 in restitution.

Carter was business administrator of the state-operated Montgomery County Development Center in Huber Heights from August 2009 until March 2012. Authorities say he took Social Security, disability and pension money from an account for patients and used that funding for personal expenses including liposuction.

The facility serves seven area counties.

Carter’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call on Friday.
