Man Who Stole Restauranteur's Cancer Funds Heading to Jail | News
BUFFALO, NY - The sentence for a Buffalo man who admitted stealing fundraising cash from the former owner of an Allentown restaurant includes 30 days behind bars.
Scott Huber, 36, appeared before Erie County Court Judge Michael D'Amico after admitting to grand larceny last month.
Over a ten month period, Huber stole more than $50,000 from the trust of Mary Tomaselli, the former owner of La Tee Da Restaurant; money that was to be used for her cancer treatments.
In addition to making full restitution and serving five years probation, Judge D'Amico also ordered Huber to serve 1,000 hours of community service at a hospice in Florida, where he now lives and write handwritten letters of apology to Tomaselli's family.
