Man accused of cashing father's military disability checks after his death


The son of a celebrated World War II 442nd Regimental Combat Team veteran is scheduled to stand trial in U.S. District Court for allegedly continuing to cash his father’s military disability checks more than six years after his father died.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment last month charging Charles T. Takahashi with stealing $202,662 from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs from March 2, 2006 to Aug. 31 this year.

Takahashi pleaded not guilty today by telephone from his home on Maui. His trial is scheduled for December.

He declined comment following his arraignment.
