TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - State investigators are concluding that Florida A&M University didn't keep track of expenses and finances for its famed Marching 100 band.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Wednesday released a scathing four-page report that concluded there was little oversight or control over many university expenses. The investigation was launched in the wake of the hazing death of a band drum major.
The report details, for example, how no one seriously investigated a theft of marching band dues from 2007. Investigators also discovered that FAMU alumni and non-university students received band per diem payments for out-of-town trips.
The state probe had already resulted in the arrest of FAMU's events director for travel expense and per diem fraud charges.
Tammy Hamlet is facing eight misdemeanor counts.
