by J.D. Garrett on April 24, 2013

The former chef for Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell at the Executive Mansion in Richmond has been charged with four counts of felony embezzlement. According to reports, he is alleged to have taken items valued in excess of $200 from the Mansion on four different occasions.

According to filing by the chef’s criminal defense attorneys, the chef is claiming some items were taken by McDonnell or his family. He is seeking information on items McDonnell’s son may have taken to his college dorm, as well as dishware from the Executive Mansion that may have been given to McDonnell’s daughter by his wife.

In Virginia, embezzlement is punished as a larceny. The maximum sentence for felony embezzlement is 20 years in prison.
