Man pleads guilty to stealing from charity
A Maryland man pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing thousands of dollars from a non-profit serving at-risk children in DC and using the funds for his own expenses, WJLA reports.
Caesar Adigwe pleaded guilty to stealing more than $530,000 from Residential Youth Services while serving as its executive director from October 2004 to April 2008.
Adigwe admitted he opened an unauthorized account in RYS' name and deposited $350,000 of charitable contributions into it. According to a statement filed with his plea agreement, he used the contributions for expenses such as mortgage payments, college tuition for his children and his personal travel.
