CAMDEN, Maine (AP) - A Maine charity says it’s begun charting a course for the future after its former president was sentenced to four years in prison for embezzling $4.6 million.

United Mid-Coast Charities says it has begun recouping the funds, has paid more than $530,000 to local charities, and has embarked on a strategic plan led by retired Marine Maj. Gen. Douglas O’Dell of Rockport.

Last week, 82-year-old Russell Brace of Camden was sentenced to prison and ordered to repay the stolen money.

The charity, which supports dozens of agencies in Knox and Waldo counties, sued last year after Brace retired following 13 years as president. His lawyer says Brace has repaid more than $1 million.
