Couple pleads guilty to embezzling from USAID
Friday - 10/5/2012, 4:59pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former deputy director of a U.S. Agency for International Development contractor and his wife are pleading guilty to embezzling more than $1 million from a program to address global health problems like AIDS.
Mark Adams, 44, and Latasha Bell, 36, both of Fort Washington, Md., admit using the money to renovate their home and purchase a luxury car.
Both pleaded guilty Friday to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. They agreed to make full restitution.
The two admitted that Adams used his position to submit and approve false invoices. The invoices bilked USAID's global health program. A co-conspirator pleaded guilty last March.
Under sentencing guidelines, Adams faces up to 51 to 63 months in prison. Bell agreed to serve home confinement.
Sentencing is in December.
