Man sentenced for using UH Foundation money to pay gambling debt

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A former University of Hawaii Foundation employee is not going to prison for using scholarship money to pay off a gambling debt.

A federal judge sentenced Dodge Watson, 34, to three years’ probation Monday for forging the signatures of other foundation employees to get approval for a $2,000 scholarship check made payable to his bookie.

Watson pleaded guilty to identity theft in June.

U.S. District Judge J. Michael Seabright also fined Watson $2,000 and ordered him to perform 150 hours of community service. Watson has already paid back the money he stole.
