TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas man has admitted stealing $62,000 in cash from an Army fund he managed at Fort Riley.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 59-year-old Michael Steffens, of Junction City, pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to one count of stealing public money.
Steffens was a business manager of the Army’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation program at the northeast Kansas post. The fund provides programs and services to soldiers and their families.
In his plea, Steffens admitted stealing the money from August 2013 until he was charged in August of this year.
Both parties have agreed to recommend that Steffens be sentenced to two years’ probation and restitution. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 9.
