The former head of Pamlico County's Chamber of Commerce pleaded guilty to embezzlement Monday.
Thirty-seven year-old David Kitchen used to be the president of the Pamlico County Chamber of Commerce. The New Bern Sun Journal says Kitchen pleaded guilty to embezzling money Monday. There is a disagreement between the state and Kitchen's attorney about how much Kitchen embezzled, according to the paper. Kitchen is scheduled to be sentenced in March.
Meanwhile, the court case of the head of another chamber of commerce accused of embezzling money is still going on. Jennifer Barr is due in Pitt County Superior Court in February. She used to head the Ayden Chamber of Commerce.
