Court of appeals rejects claim that embezzler wrote 142 checks on a single impulse

In Bragg v. Commonwealth, the Court of Appeals in an opinion by Judge Frank, joined by Judges Benton and Felton, held that the defendant, a former church treasurer, was properly charged with 5 counts, rather than one count, of embezzlement, over the defendant's argument that he wrote all the checks from the church account on "one impulse" over time because he was broke.
