A Dougherty County Grand Jury returned indictments on two former Albany State University Foundation employees Wednesday.

Former Foundation Executive Director Angela Getter and former business manager Sean Stanley have been indicted on one count of Racketeering.

Getter is the former executive director of the Foundation, and Stanley is the former business manager of the Foundation.

According to a release, the Georgia Attorney General's office said Getter and Stanley had supplemental checks produced which awarded them $12,500 and $15,500 for "professional services."

The theft was discovered during a routine audit after Getter and Stanley had resigned from their positions in 2008.

The case is being investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Getter and Stanley haven't been arrested yet.

Prosecutors believe they live out of state now.

If convicted, they could receive a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Albany State University Foundation Vice Chairman Greg Hylick released a statement Thursday:


Two former Albany State University employees with fiduciary responsibilities in operating the university's foundation face charges of racketeering, according to the Dougherty County District Attorney's office.

The investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is based on foundation activities prior to 2008. The Georgia Attorney General's Office is handling the investigation.

As Vice Chairman of the ASU Foundation, I nor board members, can comment on active investigations or pending actions. We are cooperating with authorities as the investigation continues.

Our organization retained new leadership in 2008 and is heading in the right direction. New accounting controls are also in place and subsequent audits proved satisfactory. Our main objective is to support the students of Albany State University.
