Robert Due: New indictment accuses former Covington finance director of stealing $700,000

That's $100,000 more than in previous accounting

COVINGTON, Ky. – A new indictment against Robert Due adds $100,000 to the total he's accused of stealing as Covington finance director.

That brings the amount to about $700,000 – and that could go higher, according to Rob Sanders, Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney.

Investigators say they have gone through 11 years of financial records. Due held the job for 14 years.

The 15-count indictment accuses Due of official misconduct, theft, unlawful access to a computer and possession of a forged instrument.

Due is accused of depositing the money in the accounts of his wife, children and his late aunt. 

Covington has sued Due to try to recover the lost money.

Due was forced out as finance director in August and arrested in September.

Due was originally under house arrest, but he has tried to kill himself twice since then.

He is now being held in the Kenton County jail.

The Kentucky state auditor is also investigating this case.
