A 53-year-old Flushing, Michigan woman has been charged with obstruction of justice and six counts of felony embezzlement.  She is accused of stealing some $20,000 from a poker room charity for a Flint children’s charity. 

The  Michigan Attorney General's office and the Michigan Gaming Control Board began conducting the investigation last year.

Dian Stephens was ultimately slapped with the obstruction of justice charge earlier this month.

Stephens could serve up to 20 years in prison if found guilty on all counts.

“This woman claimed she wanted to help Flint kids, but instead it appears she used her charity as a front to bolster herself personally,” said Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. “This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated and instead of facing up to her alleged actions, Ms. Stephens allegedly continued to try and shirk the law. In a city that has already suffered so much, I take any allegations very seriously.”

She will appear at a hearing this coming Thursday March 23.
