Serial Thief Takes Money From Each of His Nonprofit Employers

by Gary Snyder

He pleaded guilty to stealing money from nonprofits he worked for to fund a lavish lifestyle including massages and expensive dinners he otherwise couldn’t have afforded.

He earned the right to live outside of the structured community corrections facility but was still under regular supervision, but was then accused of committing violations includes missing curfew, skipping scheduled appointments and testing positive for drug use.

He had a long history of stealing money from groups he worked for.

When he was caught stealing previously he agreed to repay the money. He did that, prosecutors said, by stealing money from his current place of employment.

At sentencing, he hoped to lessen his sentence by offering to counsel nonprofits on how to prevent such thefts.

At the time of his original arrest, he was director of finance for the Associated Students of Colorado State University. He stepped down from the post following his arrest and was expelled from CSU.
