ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Expensive audio equipment that was confiscated from a man who bought it with stolen money was donated to Albany Middle School Thursday.

Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards says that the high-end gear was taken from the home of Seth Donelly, who pled guilty to embezzling money from Wynnsong/Carmike Theaters in a scheme he implemented in March of 2014.

Estimates run to over $50,000 worth of money stolen from the movie chain. He was given a 20 year sentence, serving one year in prison. 

He admitted he used his access to computers to issue fraudulent refunds over a three month period. 

Donelly has been ordered to repay $54,500 in restitution. Officials recovered $22,000 from six different bank accounts.

Officials at Albany Middle School plan to use the audio gear in their Cafeteria. AMS was selected to receive the donation because the D.A.'s Office was so impressed with their dedication to learning and teaching at the school.
