NKU fires dance coach over theft allegations

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY (FOX19) - A Northern Kentucky University dance coach was fired in June and accused of embezzling money from the university.

The information was released by the university on Thursday with the accusations of Jennifer Hilvert.

Hilvert is accused of improperly using a procurement card, and stealing $6,800.

Officials say she repaid $5,300 back to the University and has told them that she intends to pay the balance.

The firing came about a year after former athletic director Scott Eaton pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $311,000 from the school using such a procurement card. Eaton is serving a 10-year sentence.
