Founded in 1913, the historically Black sorority has 1,000 collegiate and alumni chapters in the U.S. and internationally.

DOJ documents stated that the Arnetts, who live in Purcellville, Virginia, admitted to misappropriating the $228,000 over the course of nearly two years, from October 2017 to September 2019.

While Diello mostly acted as an accomplice, Jeanine admitted to using a wide variety of tactics to embezzle the funds. This includes fraudulent ACH money transfers and credit card transactions.

Many of these charges were used for personal purchases and expenses, the DOJ said. This included significant transactions at places like T-Mobile, Coach, Avis, and more.

Delta Sigma Theta fired Jeanine in August 2019. It is unknown if the termination was related to financial issues, but the sorority reportedly discovered the bank fraud one month after she was let go.

Delta Sigma Theta was founded as a heavily service-based sorority, and over the years has started several community-strengthening initiatives. Its mission is, "[providing] assistance and support through established programs in local communities throughout the world."
