GREAT FALLS — Montana officials have granted parole to a man who has spent 10 years in prison for embezzling $121,000 from the Great Falls Community Food Bank.
Alan Reavley received a 20-year sentence in 2003 for using donations to the food bank to pay his personal expenses while he was its director.
The Montana parole board decided last week that Reavley can be released on parole. Corrections officials say he will remain on parole until February 2023 and will be transferred to probation until February 2053.
Police found evidence of the embezzlement while investigating the 1964 slayings of grocer Jim Arrotta and his wife, Lois, at a store where Reavley once worked. A judge found no physical evidence linking Reavley to the deaths.
