AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man who was hired as a deputy township treasurer in Washtenaw County despite no experience has pleaded guilty to embezzlement.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says Monday in a release that 21-year-old Brandon Humeniak was charged after cash deposits intended for Augusta Township property taxes were used to pay his personal bills.

Residents received delinquency notices on property taxes they had already paid. The amount of money taken was not released Monday.

Humeniak was appointed in 2012 by his grandmother, Lynda Dew, who is Augusta Township’s treasurer.

The Ann Arbor News has reported that he told officials at the time that he had a high school diploma but no financial experience.



Humeniak no longer is the town’s deputy treasurer. He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 22.
