Former NMU Student President Charged with Embezzlement

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -- The former student president at Northern Michigan University has been charged with embezzlement.

Campus police and Marquette County prosecutors say Amber Lopota stole from the student government.

Messages seeking comment were left Friday with Lopota's lawyer.

WLUC-TV reports Lopota waived a preliminary examination Thursday in district court.

Northern Michigan spokeswoman Cindy Paavola says Lopota was arrested in March and withdrew from the university last week.

A new president of the Associated Students of Northern Michigan University was elected this week and will take office on Tuesday.

Lopota is scheduled to appear at a hearing in circuit court on May 9.
