Verdict Handed Down In Navy Vet Scam


Convicted Vet

Bobby Thompson, who authorities have identified as Harvard-trained attorney John Donald Cody, looks over to the jury as the verdict is read Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, in Cleveland. Thompson was convicted of racketeering, theft, money laundering and other charges. Thompson was charged with looting the United States Navy Veterans Association, a charity he ran in Tampa, Fla. Authorities believe he defrauded donors of up to $100 million in 41 states. A fraction of that money was found. When he was arrested, authorities found fake IDs and a suitcase with $980,000 in cash. He faces up to 67 years in prison at his sentencing, which was scheduled for Dec. 16. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
