Former NAMI executive director accused of theft from nonprofit

Jessica Gruneich has been tentatively charged with felony theft and 18 counts of misappropriation of personal identifying materials.

Gruneich, the former executive director of the Madison-based National Alliance on Mental Illness, allegedly used an agency credit card for numerous unauthorized expenditures, including rental cars, hotel rooms, restaurant bills, and moving expenses, according to a WKOW-TV report.

A check of the NAMI website now lists Mary Kay Battaglia as executive director.
