3rd case dismissed in NIU "coffee fund" scandal

DeKalb County Prosecutors have dropped their case against a 3rd NIU employee in the so-called "coffee fund" scandal.

56-year old Keith Jackson of Hinckley had been charged with official misconduct and violation of the State Property Control Act in connection with alleged university scrap materials being sold. The proceeds were kept in a bank account for holiday parties and other social gatherings.

Jackson was also originally charged for obstructing justice for allegedly putting the money from the coffee fund account into another account he controlled.

Only 1 NIU employee has plead guilty in the case. Former Vice President Robert Albanase was arrested by DeKalb County authorities.
