A former Indiana firefighter who taught CPR courses but failed to turn in all the fees collected, has been given a suspended sentence and ordered to pay restitution of $4500.
Robert A. Grayless taught CPR classes at the St. Joseph Township Fire Department between June 2013 and December 2014. The investigation began when St. Joseph Township’s fire chief discovered discrepancies between the registered attendees and the money received for a class in December 2014.
In July 2015 Grayless, 51, was charged with two counts of theft for allegedly not turning in all of the fees he collected for the classes. He pled guilty last month in Allen Superior Court to one count of theft and the other charge was dismissed. He was sentenced to two years in prison, but Judge Wendy Davis suspended the sentence, placed him on probation, and ordered him to pay the $4500 in restitution to St. Joseph Township.
