POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A Rhinebeck man accused in the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars was convicted of weapons possession and criminal contempt six years ago, according to a report in the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Carl Immich, 53, who managed Harriet Tubman Terrace Apartments, a low-income housing complex in Poughkeepsie, has been charged with embezzling money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), according to Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
It was not known Wednesday if Immich is still employed there.
