Spicer, now a certified public accountant, worked for Emory University for about 20 years, according to his attorney J. Lansing Kimme. As a senior business manager for the division of general medicine, Spicer would purchase various electronic items through the accounts payable system, sell the items on eBay, and transfer the proceeds from his eBay account to his personal bank account.
"Spicer’s scheme, which took place between May 2007 and July 2011, was designed to line his pocket and exploit the trust of his long-time employer,” said DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James. “The defendant has since taken responsibility for his actions and has agreed to repay Emory University $150,000 at a monthly rate of $1,250 a month upon his release. We feel this plea is fair and just for all parties involved.”
Spicer was sentenced under the First Offenders Act. Assistant District Attorney Antonio Veal served as lead prosecutor.
