UNDATED (WHTC) -- A former Republican candidate for the state House of Representatives who withdrew from the race in late November has now been charged with embezzlement.  Terry Burns, a former Saugatuck Township supervisor and Allegan County commissioner, allegedly took money from a trust account that belongs to a friend.  Allegations of embezzlement surfaced prior to his withdrawal from the race.  At the time, Burns said he withdrew because of his daughter’s death in a traffic crash last August.  Burns is charged with embezzling 20-thousand dollars or more from a vulnerable adult.  The charge could lead to 10 years in prison and up to 15-thousand dollars in fines.
