Decatur, AL – New charges have been filed against Laura Harris Phillips, the former director of the Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur.

In December, Phillips was accused of theft, after more than $50,000 worth of funds from the Center were found to be missing or misused.

Now, Phillips is accused of misusing $2,500 from the Alabama Museum Association, based in Birmingham. Investigators say that the money was transferred from the AMA account to a business account unrelated to the group.

She’s being held on $5,000 bond.
