Clemson Greek Life Assistant Caught Stealing Panhellenic Funds
Eli A. Ker, 29, of Easley, was charged with breach of trust with fraudulent intent, value $10,000 or more.
The arrest results from a State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and Clemson University investigation that began last month after a university employee noticed irregularities in a bank statement and contacted the Clemson University Police Department, which notified SLED.
Ker was associate director for fraternity and sorority life at Clemson University from Jan. 2006 to Sept. 10, 2012. In his position, he had access the Panhellenic recruitment bank account.
Between Aug. 29, 2011 and Aug. 29, 2012, he allegedly converted approximately $33,820 to his personal use, according to an arrest warrant issued today. The warrant also alleges he created false bank statements.
Ker appeared in Clemson University Municipal Court today and was released on a personal recognizance bond of $10,000.
