State licensing regulators have revoked the certified public accountant license of a Salt Lake man accused of embezzling $8,250 from a local Rotary Club, an order said.
The order issued by the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing said Glenn Elmer Evans was not acting as a CPA in his capacity as treasurer of the South Salt Lake Rotary Club from 1987 to last February.But Evans "engaged in dishonest, fraudulent and wholly unethical conduct discreditable to the public accountancy profession," said the Utah Board of Accountancy, which recommended the revocation. "He committed various acts which reflect adversely on his fitness to practice as a public accountant."
The division accused Evans of depositing $8,250 in club funds into his business account and failing to deposit in the club account $2,000-$3,000 in cash payments from members. Regulators also said Evans owed about $1,500-$2,000 in membership dues and activity fees.
"(Evans') misconduct was prompted by his lack of sufficient income to meet his existing personal expenses," the order said. Last May, Evans reimbursed the club $10,000.
