COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Robert Due, Covington's former finance director who is under indictment, is scheduled to change his plea Thursday in Kenton Circuit Court, according to court documents.

A Kenton County grand jury has indicted Due on 15 counts, including charges that he stole the city's money for 11 years and forged documents. He has pleaded not guilty.

State auditors reviewed more than 66,000 checks, unveiling a scheme that allowed the former finance director to write 68 checks to himself, his spouse, his aunt and a vendor under his control totaling $793,127 from 2001 to 2013, Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts Adam Edelen's office said last month.
