Guilty plea for nonprofit worker in $100K fraud case

A 49-year-old employee for a Washington-based nonprofit group admitted in federal court Thursday that she stole nearly $100,000 from the organization over a two-year span.

Kimberly Nicely of College Park pleaded guilty in the District’s federal court to wire fraud in connection with the scheme, court records show.

In court papers, Assisstant U.S. Attorney Bryan Seeley wrote that Nicely, a controller, diverted money from the Fund for Peace’s bank accounts to herself for personal expenses including trips, meals, rental cars and cash withdraws at a casino in West Virginia.

Nicely is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 24.
