A former Riverview Community Action Corp. director accused of embezzling money from the senior center will complete an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program.
Last week, Vanessa M. DuVall, 39, of New Kensington had an ARD hearing before Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Judge Robert C. Gallo. She was admitted into the program for 18 months.
According to the state code, the program is intended to encourage offenders to make a fresh start after participation in a rehabilitative program and offers them the possibility of a clean record if they successfully complete the program.
DuVall is accused of embezzling at least $10,000 from the senior center, which is located on Second Street in Oakmont. She was employed at the center from 2004 to 2011. The Allegheny County District Attorney's office filed the charges against her last month after a year-long investigation.
According to court documents, she owes about $9,490 in restitution to the senior center.
