Valdosta -- A former YMCA director is convicted on federal embezzlement charges.

Nicky Tampas was convicted Wednesday of embezzling almost one million dollars from the Valdosta-Lowndes YMCA between 1999 and 2002. He was also convicted of conspiracy to embezzle and misleading conduct.

Tampas was acquitted of making false statements. He will be returned to federal court around the middle of January for sentencing.

Earlier this year, Wayman Lee Patrick, Junior was convicted on one count of embezzlement and one count of conspiracy to embezzle.

Tampas was accused of stealing federal funds from the YMCA by disguising them as legitimate payments to Patrick's landscaping business.
