The former Kinloch Fire Chief Darran Kelley, pleaded guilty to several charges in Federal Court on Wednesday.
Kelley was facing five felony charges, including three counts of fraud, connected to a series of thefts that occurred over a six year period. Starting in 2007, he skimmed money from the fire district to cover gambling debts and credit car payments. Kelley also illegally took social security payments.
For each count of fraud, Kelley faces 20 years in prison and a quarter-million dollar fine. He heads to sentencing in October and if given the maximum sentence, would spend 75 years behind bars.
NEW YORK (AP) - Blogger Nik Richie tells The Associated Press he initially didn't believe it when a woman contacted him in April and claimed she had exchanged sexual texts and photographs with former congressman Anthony Weiner.
Richie's website, The Dirty, upended the New York City mayoral race Monday when it published some of Weiner's correspondence with the woman, including revealing photographs it claimed were of his genitals.
Richie says he withheld the texts and pictures for months while he tried to verify the woman's story.
He says he had nothing against Weiner before the scandal, but thinks he should withdraw from the mayoral race.
