John Douglas Schlueter, a former office manager for the Santa Barbara Central Office of Alcoholics Anonymous, plead no contest to embezzling approximately $9,000 from the organization by misusing credit cards to purchase computer tablets, projectors, food, gas, and pay for automobile repairs. Schlueter paid back the $9,000, was placed on three years probation, and can no longer be in contact with his former employer.
