Grand jury indicts man for stealing $200K from SC Education Lottery

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Richland County Grand Jury has indicted a Columbia man accused of embezzling over $200,000 from the South Carolina Education Lottery.

According to South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, 55-year-old Anthony J. McNeil is charged with one felony count of embezzlement of public funds over $10,000.

If found guilty, McNeil could face up to five years in prison and a fine. He was employed in the finance division of the South Carolina Education Lottery.

According to the SCAG's office, between April 2010 and August 2012, McNeil used overcharges, computer changes, bank account sweeps and the redirecting of certain funds to steal the money and keep the discrepancy from showing up in the Lottery's records.

The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office.
