Mansfield man admits to stealing funds from veterans’ organizations
The Journal Inquirer reports that 72-year-old Frederick Brown cut a deal with prosecutors and agreed to plead guilty to larceny charges.
State police started investigating in 2014 after a donation check from the VFW bounced. Brown was Post 938’s treasurer and formerly the Legion’s finance officer.
Authorities determined that Brown paid $32,000 to a company that handles secure transactions for a website hosting webcam pornography.
Brown pleaded guilty last Friday.
