The Abbey of Gethsemani (Trappist, Ky.) has learned that Mr. John Hutchins has been indicted by the Nelson County Grand Jury with charges that include 80-plus counts to include theft by unlawful taking and unlawful access to a computer. Mr. Hutchins had been employed in the Abbey's bookkeeping office since 2007.
In February of this year the Abbey of Gethsemani discovered improper financial transactions and reported these to the police. At that time Mr. Hutchins was suspended from his position pending investigation. His employment has since been terminated. The Abbey has cooperated fully with the police investigation.
This breach of trust has been harmful to the network of good will that exists among the monastery's employees, neighbors, visitors, and benefactors. With the help of professionals, the Abbey of Gethsemani is developing a new system of financial controls to reduce the risk of a theft of this nature from happening again.
We continue to pray for Mr. Hutchins, his family, and all those affected by these allegations.
