Man accused of theft from DuPage special needs organization
WHEATON – Charges were filed today against a St. Charles man accused of stealing more than $8,000 from an organization that works with individuals with special needs.
Kurt Hinterkopf, 33, of the first block of North Sixth Avenue, turned himself in to authorities yesterday on a $20,000 warrant. He posted the necessary 10 percent, or $2,000 bond, and was released from custody. Hinterkopf faces one count of Class 3 felony theft punishable by up to five years in prison.
In September 2008, Hinterkopf began working at Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) in Carol Stream as a program supervisor. In this position, he had access to money that was intended to be used for programs for WDSRA participants. Allegedly, Hinterkopf stole from the cash funds and used it for his own personal use, starting in November 2008. This continued until he left the company in April 2013.
