Kevin Creed, a resident of Litchfield, CT has been sentenced to 3.5 years in prison. The Litchfield man is charged for stealing approximately $1.4 million which was collected with an intention to help veterans and families of people serving in the military. This comes as a statement from the prosecutors that apart from being in jail for 3.5 years, Kevin is also supposed to serve three years of supervised release.
If the prosecutors are to be believed, Friends of Fisher House Connecticut was established by Kevin in 2010 when he was a Bristol attorney. The institution established and operated by Kevin was for supporting and raising funds for the building and maintenance of what was called “Kevin House” in West Haven.
The donations for this house collected from individuals at fairs, carnivals as well as supermarkets, including fund-raising events summed up with the Bristol half-marathon and a 10-kilometer foot race were solicited by Creed.
Creed’s claim was to support the construction and operation of the house that was supposed to be built in West Haven and titled Fisher house. On the name of Friends of Fisher House Connecticut a donation amount of $1 million for financing the construction of the home.
The claims are that Creed had used his position for taking approximately $1.4 million which were raised for the organization and used it for personal as well as law firm expense, provided if the prosecutors are believed. Ordered by the New Haven judge, Creed is told to make complete restitution, even after Creed did plead guilty for wire fraud on 28th August 2019. Currently, Creed was released on a $100,000 bond on a term that he will report to prison on February 10th, 2021.
