HOA Embezzler Gets 90 Days

Yet another HOA embezzler got a tap on the wrist this week, after pleading guilty to forty counts of stealing from his neighbors.

Robert Dwyane Wood stole an undetermined amount of money from the treasury of the Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corporation, a homeowners association in Atlanta. Much of the stolen money came from funds raised to help victims of the 2008 Atlanta tornado. Victims of the tornado never received the money that was donated on their behalf.

Wood was formerly the president of the Homeowner Association.

In addition to 90 days in jail, Wood was ordered to make restitution in the amount of 78,000 dollars.  That’s the amount of money that could be documented as being stolen. But other HOA leaders say they suspect that far more money was taken, but they couldn’t prove Wood stole additional funds.
