Former coach charged with embezzlement

A former Constantine girls’ basketball coach has been charged with embezzling more than $11,000 from a non-profit organization.
Joseph Stacey was arrested Oct. 4 and arraigned. He was freed on a $15,000 personal recognizance bond.
Stacey allegedly embezzled $11,060 between May 2012 and November 2015.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, Stacey opened a checking account in May 2012 under his name and Constantine Public Schools for funds to the girls’ basketball program.
According to the affidavit, Stacey withdrew money shortly after it was deposited over the course of the three-and-a-half-year period.
Former Constantine School Superintendent Chuck Frisbie contacted police to launch the investigation.
Victims in the case include Constantine Public Schools, the village of Constantine and the St. Joseph County United Way.
A preliminary conference is set for Tuesday.
