Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Demetrius Robinson,28,of Scottsdale, AZ, has been found guilty of felony theft in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, in connection with his former employment at Morgan State University.

Between February 10, 1999 and May 31, 2000, while an employee at the University's physical plant, Robinson caused fictitious payroll checks totaling approximately $17,000.00 to be issued in the name of former Morgan State University employees. He then endorsed and deposited the payroll checks into his personal State Employees Credit Union account.

Robinson was terminated by the University in June 2000.

In today's hearing, the Honorable Stuart R. Berger, imposed a five year suspended sentence and placed Robinson on 12 months of electronic home monitoring. He also placed Robinson on five years probation and ordered restitution to Morgan State University. Robinson was arrested in March 2003 in Scottsdale, Arizona and waived extradition and turned himself in on April 2, 2003.

The case was investigated by the Morgan State University Police Department and the Maryland State Police and prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division.
