A 77-year-old Glencoe man recently pleaded not guilty to stealing more than $400,000 from a fraternity at Northwestern University.

Peter Schellenbach, the former president of the Sigma Chi Home Association at the Evanston campus, was arraigned in Cook County Circuit Court for one Class 1 felony charge of theft between $100,000-$500,000, which is punishable by up to four to 15 years in prison, according to a June 13 statement from Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

His next hearing is scheduled for July 15.
