Watch who you hire down in Palm Beach.

The former chief financial officer for the Jewish Community Center of the Greater Palm Beaches pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing from the organization and agreed to make nearly $65,000 in restitution over the five years he will be on probation....

Schattie went to work for the JCC in the mid-1990s after allegedly embezzling nearly $400,000 from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Palm Beach when he worked there as chief financial officer, according to church officials. The diocese didn't seek criminal charges against Schattie in that case, and Schattie agreed to make restitution but has only paid about a one quarter of the money, church officials have said.
