Columbia, SC (WLTX)- The South Carolina Hospitality Association says it's naming a new president at a news conference today.
Former president, Tom Sponseller, committed suicide in February. In a suicide note, Sponseller said he was despondent after discovering that the association's accounting director had embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from the group.
Rachel Duncan was sentenced to two and a half years in federal prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion and wire fraud charges. Authorities have drawn no link between Sponseller and the missing money.
