Former Rapid City CASA director sentenced for embezzlement

The former Executive Director of the Court Appointed Special Advocates program in Rapid City, or CASA, is sentenced to probation and jail time for embezzlement.

Those on the board now say they have taken measures to ensure this never happens again.

Chad Catron, 32, was sentenced to 5 years probation, 180 days in jail and a $2,500 fine.

He embezzled more than $9,000 from the local and state CASA programs. Board members say their organization's income is based on donors so they are doing everything they can to ensure the money will go to the right place.

"When someone makes choices to impact and misappropriate those funds we have a responsibility as a board to look at our policies look at our procedures and fine tune some things to make sure something like this never happens again," said Gregg McNabb, Board Chair of CASA.

In court on Friday, Catron expressed remorse to CASA, the community and his family. But he did not explain why he embezzled the funds.
