Former Echo Housing director pleads guilty to federal theft charges


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- Former Echo Housing Executive Director Stephanie Tenbarge has reportedly pleaded guilty to federal theft charges.

Tenbarge was indicted last year after an audit reportedly showed she embezzled more than $146,000 from the organization to personal goods, services, and property from 2015-2017. Tenbarge will be sentenced December 1.

On behalf of our clients, we appreciate that the former director has accepted responsibility for her actions… more importantly, this court action affirms a fresh start for our organization that has been underway for more than two years.
