Man Gets Year in Jail for Stealing Tons of Seafood
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A former dietary manager at a state juvenile justice facility has been sentenced to a year in jail for stealing tons of seafood and selling it to restaurants.
Forty-two-year-old Douglas Allen Fairfax of Hagerstown was also ordered to pay restitution for the state at sentencing Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court.
Fairfax was charged in April with stealing more than $90,000 from the Department of Juvenile Services' Victor Cullen Center in Sabillasville. Prosecutors say he used his state-issued credit card to buy 7.5 tons of frozen crab legs, shrimp and other items, worth more than $90,000.
