One of the largest funders of a Summit County treatment home for alcoholics and drug addicts has launched a forensic audit of the Akron non-profit organization. The Summit County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services board is hiring an accountant following the sentencing of Interval Brotherhood Home’s founder, the Reverend Samuel Ciccolini, on tax and fraud charges in federal court last month. Ciccolini ran the home for almost four decades and is accused of embezzling money through by falsifying work and other records. Alcohol Board Interim Executive Director Gerald Craig says they are confident that the audit will reveal no misappropriation.

Ciccolini repaid $1.28 million voluntarily and was ordered to pay $3.5 million in restitutions.
