Former University of Maryland, University College Employee Pleads Guilty to Theft

BALTIMORE, MD ( September 17, 2010) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former State employee Darlene Yesudian, 33, of Beltsville, entered a plea of guilty to one count of felony theft scheme before retired Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Graydon S. McKee. Yesudian was given a suspended sentence and ordered to complete three years of probation as well as participate in community service. Full restitution had been made prior to the hearing.

Yesudian was previously employed as an administrative aide at the University of Maryland, University College between May 2004 and October 2005. During the late summer of 2005, Yesudian used her state issued corporate purchasing card to buy over $10,000 in electronics and computer equipment which she either put to personal use, gave to friends, or pawned.

Originally referred by the University System of Maryland Office of Internal Audits, the investigation was conducted by the Attorney General’s Criminal Division and the Maryland State Police.
