On December 22, 2020, Donna Scott, 52, of Vallejo, CA (formerly of Massachusetts), pleaded guilty in Suffolk Superior Court to a charge of Larceny over $250 for embezzling more than $45,000 from her former employer.

A joint investigation by the Office of the Inspector General and the Attorney General’s Office found that Ms. Scott stole more than $45,000 in funds that were intended to provide transitional and permanent housing and support services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.  At the time, Ms. Scott was a manager at Heading Home, Inc., which is partially funded by grants from the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development.

Ms. Scott was sentenced to three years of probation, including one year of home confinement, and restitution of $45,132.59 to Heading Home, Inc.
