HAMLIN, W.Va. — The former administrator at the Lincoln County Primary Care Center will be evaluated for at least two months at the Western Regional Jail before a judge decides on his final sentence.
Brian Keith Crist received a suspended sentence in a court hearing Friday in Hamlin. He pleaded guilty to a single count of embezzlement back in January.
Crist used his position to divert money, services and property for personal gain. He made more than $100,000 worth of personal purchases using a company credit card, including home improvement supplies for two personal homes in Lincoln County, Baltimore Orioles memorabilia and baseball equipment.
WCHS-TV reported a judge decided Friday to send Crist for a 60 to 120-day evaluation at the regional jail before deciding if he’ll be sent to prison or not.
