Former Kimball city councilman charged with theft of probate funds

A former Kimball city councilman sentenced to prison last summer for the attempted first degree sexual assault of a child has been charged with the theft of probate funds. The Star-Herald is reporting Scott Haun is accused of taking money from a woman's probate account while he was acting as the woman's conservator and guardian.

The report says Haun took nearly $20,000 from an account established for Doris Anderson of Kimball over 18 months beginning in May of 2010 to pay for his personal credit cards and for cash. The report says Haun tried to cover up the withdrawals by inflating Anderson's expenditures, including her boarding costs.

The 50 year old Haun is charged with two felonies, theft of property, and vulnerable abuse of an adult. No court date has been set yet for Haun.
