PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Two executives at a Philadelphia organization serving the homeless are accused of stealing $350,000 and using the money for personal expenses ranging from the purchase of shoes and the renting of a Hummer to a trip to Disney World.
The U.S. Attorney’s office announced the indictments Thursday of 38-year-old Erica Brown of Glenolden and 62-year-old Nathaniel Robinson of Philadelphia. The two were top executives at SELF Inc., which received federal money to help the needy.
From 2005 through 2010, prosecutors say Brown spent $199,000 on personal expenses with a corporate credit card and Robinson charged $154,000. Both have since left SELF.
Lawyers for the two did not return calls.
Both face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
