From the Office of the U.S. Attorney (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania):
  • Nathaniel E. Robinson, 62, of Philadelphia, plead guilty [] to using funds intended to help the homeless to pay for his own personal and living expenses. Robinson was the Chief Program Officer at SELF, Inc. He was charged with theft from a program receiving federal funds.

    Between 2006 and 2010, Robinson used his corporate American Express credit card at SELF to charge personal expenses.
