Submitted by: Glenn Loughlin, Chico

ANSWER: Thom V. Randle pleaded guilty in May 2010 to computer fraud and money laundering in connection with his theft of $693,000 from the Columbian Retirement Home in Marysville.

He was indicted by a federal grand jury in April 2009.

According to documents filed in court, Randle served as vice president of finance for the nonprofit retirement facility operated by the Knights of Columbus. Randle admitted in court that between September 2004 and September 2005, he used the Internet to open bank accounts for the home without authorization. On multiple occasions, Randle transferred funds from these accounts into other bank accounts that he controlled. He admitted to using the stolen funds to pay personal expenses.

According to court documents, he was sentenced to 33 months at a federal correctional institution in Taft and ordered to pay $330,097 in restitution. An online roster of federal prison inmates indicates that Randle, now 70 years old, is scheduled for release in March.
