ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Former Rochester City Councilman Adam McFadden pleaded guilty to forging and falsifying dozens of receipts and invoices, helping him collect more than $133,000.
McFadden said he collected the money while he was the executive director for Quad A For Kids, a non-profit organization for kids in the Rochester City School District. The organization was funded by private donations and grants and the Rochester Community Foundation.
In court Wednesday, he admitted to forging receipts from Walmart, Staples, and Amazon.
As part of the plea, he faces up to 21 months in federal prison. He faces a similar sentence for the crimes he admitted to earlier this year.
Back in April, he admitted to concocting a scheme to get paid for work he didn't do or barely did involving the Rochester Housing Charities. He also admitted to lying on his taxes.
The judge will decide if the sentences will run concurrently or consecutively. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 12, 2020.
