(Cincinnati, Oh.)--A former Finance Director for Covington is expected to change his plea in Kenton Circuit Court next week.


Bob Due, who previously plead not guilty to a 15-count indictment, is expected to admit to embezzling nearly $800,000 of taxpayer money.


Due, was arrested on Aug. 23. 2013 and charged with stealing city money. He was later indicted on one count of abuse of public trust over $100,000, unlawful access to a computer, one count of theft by deception over $10,000, and 12 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.




An investigation discovered that from 2001 to 2013 Due, had written 68 checks to himself, his spouse, his aunt and a vendor under his control totaling $793,127.




If Due, had retained his not guilty plea and the case had gone to trial, the 63-year-old faced 32 to 100 years in prison, if he was convicted of all charges.
