Former Manasquan HS band director pleads guilty to stealing money from the band
Former Manasquan High School Warrior band director Alan Abraham has pled guilty to stealing $2,300.00 from the organization between 2015 and 2016, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutors Office.
The 60-year old Belmar man was charged after an investigation that began in April of 2017 uncovered that Abraham deposited checks and transferred funds meant for the school band into his personal bank account.
The MCPO's Financial Crimes Unit received a referral that Abraham allegedly diverted the funds meant for the band while serving as its director.
Abraham has now pled guilty to one count of third degree Theft by Unlawful Taking.
As part of a plea agreement, the State will recommend that Abraham be sentenced to probation and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $2,300.00 to the Manasquan Board of Education.
Abraham will also be barred from any type of future public employment.
He's scheduled to be sentenced on December 3 in front of Judge Falcetano.
The case was prosecuted by Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Diane Aifer.
Abraham is represented by Charles J. Uliano of West Long Branch.
