Indicted College Official Had Prior Conviction

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A top College of Southern Nevada official indicted on felony theft charges had previously been convicted of embezzling from a California Indian tribe.

Federal court records show William "Bob" Gilbert, the school's associate vice president for facilities management, pleaded guilty in 1991 to a charge of embezzling. He was sentenced to three months in prison and three years probation and ordered to pay nearly $19,000 in restitution.

Gilbert was indicted Thursday on charges of stealing materials and equipment from the school to help build his Mt. Charleston home.

Gilbert denied the latest allegations and said the previous conviction was no secret.

But a CSN spokeswoman says the school was not aware of the
conviction.
