The accused funneled about $250k through two corporations - one, a non-profit called Grace of Mercy and the other, a for-profit, called Emerald City cleaning. Mr. Potter operated on cash with several large cash withdrawals in his name. Potter turned over about $21k to his accompliances and kept the rest.
There is no evidence that anyone further up the food chain had knowledge of or benefited from these actions.
If convicted as charged, Potter and Johnson could serve between 33-43 months in prison with Ms. Sorenson in the 6-12 month range in jail. They have been served summons and will be arraigned on November 8th at the KC Courthouse.
Mr. Satterberg stated that most of the contractors contacted had been cooperative as had Mr. Potter. Two would not speak with the prosecutor without immunity which the prosecutor's office declined to give. Those two are Tony Orange and Leon "Skip" Rowlands.
