Deputy convicted of ripping off Toys for Tots

"A state district judge has sentenced a Harris County sheriff’s deputy who was convicted of theft in what prosecutors said was a scam to convince donors that their contributions would be given to a children’s toy program... Ed Christensen, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization, was found guilty of theft between $1,500 and $20,000... Christensen, an ex-Marine who has called the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program his 'favorite charity,' had full knowledge of the scam, prosecutor Russel Turbeville told the Houston Chronicle in Tuesday’s editions... Turbeville said that between 1998 and 2000, the alleged scheme netted about $350,000."
