Senior Center Theft

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) The former director of a south-central Kansas senior center has pleaded no contest to theft, misuse of public funds and giving false information.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports Edward G. Greene, 47, entered the pleas Tuesday in Cowley County District Court.

Greene resigned in September 2012 after four years as director of the Arkansas City Senior Citizens Center. He was charged last February with six felony counts, three of which were dropped under a plea agreement.

The agreement requires Greene to pay restitution of $25,000 to the senior center, $25,000 to Ark City Senior Friends and $3,000 to the city.

Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 19.
