Man steals over $300,000 from ten veterans
SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A Hampton County man pleaded guilty to stealing money from military veterans.
Federal prosecutors in South Carolina are calling the crime “despicable”.
Investigators say 61-year-old Raymond Huffman stole at least $304,413.75 from 10 veterans.
They say Huffman exploited a Veterans Affairs fiduciary program through his company - Huffman Fiduciary Services.
That’s a program that allows a third party to manage a veteran’s benefits if they are unable to do so.
The victims in this case included the estate of a veteran who passed away in 2018.
Huffman is awaiting sentencing now.
In addition to a maximum 50 years in prison, he also faces a fine up to $250,000 and paying restitution.
