Community service, restitution ordered in center theft
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The former general manager of an events center in Fargo has been sentenced to community service and ordered to pay restitution for embezzling from the business.
Richard Pallay had earlier pleaded guilty to theft for stealing nearly $16,000 from Sanctuary Events Center developed by Gov. Doug Burgum’s Kilbourne Group. KFGO says Pallay has paid back about $10,000 and was ordered to pay another $5,900. He must also perform 150 hours of community service.
Pallay told investigators he spent the money on gambling and entertainment.
