Former SYC charity boss Michael Scott Lawson Clark jailed

A former charity boss who abused his position to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from his employers will spend at least two years in an Adelaide prison.

Michael Scott Lawson Clark, 40, stole more than $350,000 from youth and homeless charity SYC between January 2016 and November 2018 while serving as its executive.

Adelaide District Court Judge Paul Muscat said Clark had deceived and betrayed many people and would live in the “cosmic shadow” of what he did.

He sentenced him on Friday to four years and two months in prison with a two-year non-parole period.
