FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A judge in Frederick says the former head of a shuttered training center for developmentally disabled adults is in contempt of his order to cooperate with an investigation of its financial failure.

The Frederick News-Post reports that on Wednesday, the court gave Jeanne Dalaba until Nov. 7 to cooperate with investigators.

Dalaba says directors of the Jeanne Bussard Center voted July 2 to close the state-supported, nonprofit center she had run for 12 years.

She says the board paid her $49,000 and gave her three used company cars as reimbursement for personal loans she had made and money she had contributed to the center.

But a court-appointed receiver says there was no active board and that Dalaba fabricated documents of the board’s supposed actions.
