Kansas City nonprofit operator indicted on 5 felony counts
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The operator of a nonprofit group set up as job re-entry program for ex-cons has been indicted on five federal counts after investigators accused him of running an employment scheme.
Prosecutors say Michael Green, operator of Kansas City Community Source, took money from ex-cons in exchange for falsely reporting to federal probation officers that the felons worked for the nonprofit.
Green, 50, is also accused of creating false employment verification documents, including pay stubs, as part of the scheme, which the felons used to satisfy requirements of supervised release.
Green is also accused of selling fake documents and IDs, including driver’s licenses, to felons.
Green is charged with three counts of making false statements to probation officers in relation to three separate people, one count of transferring a false identification document and one count of providing false documents to a probation officer.
