Man pleads guilty to stealing from charity

By Washington Post editors

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.

He should pay it all back with interest...if that means losing his home, so be it.
