Former Md. House Candidate Pleads Guilty to Theft

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A former candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $17,000 from a high school boosters group.
    
Steven Wyatt pleaded guilty to felony theft on Tuesday. He was ordered to serve six months of home detention followed by three years of supervised probation.
    
The Maryland state prosecutor's office says Wyatt has already paid back $3,300. He was ordered to pay back the rest of the $17,560 he stole while he's on probation.
    
At the time of the theft, Wyatt was president of the North County High School Athletic Boosters Association in Anne Arundel County. Prosecutors say the money went toward his campaign and personal expenses.
    
Wyatt lost his bid for the House in a Democratic primary.
    
His attorney did not immediately return a message.
