Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Licking County Prosecutor Kenneth W. Oswalt announced this week that a Licking County Grand Jury has indicted a Pataskala man for the improper use of approximately $67,000 meant for the Watkins Memorial High School Band.

The grand jury indicted the booster club’s former treasurer, Ernest "Todd" Bowers, 51, of Pataskala, on one count of theft, a felony of the fourth degree.

Bowers allegedly stole approximately $67,000 from the Booster Club over a four-year period. An investigation showed money was used for personal trips, adult entertainment, gas, food, personal cell phones, cable services, and education expenses for family members.

The case was investigated by the Ohio Attorney General’s Charitable Law Section.
