Former Howard County man pleads guilty to $950,000 wire fraud

Federal prosecutors say a man has pleaded guilty wire fraud in plot to defraud a client of $950,000.

Fifty-two-year-old Wilkins McNair, formerly of Ellicott City, entered the plea Friday. He will be sentenced March 5.

Court documents indicate that McNair, a CPA, was retained by a woman whose husband had died to probate the estate and manage a family trust.

Prosecutors say McNair deposited all of the money into accounts he controlled and used the money to pay salary and other expenses at his accounting firm.

Authorities say he also used some money to pay to support a girlfriend and to pay his legal expenses for a criminal case.
