AG Gansler: Former Morgan State Employee Pleads Guilty to Theft
Sentencing scheduled for October 24

Baltimore, MD ( Aug. 6, 2013) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former Morgan State University employee Bernard Jermaine Healthington, 36, of Baltimore, pleaded guilty to two counts of felony theft and one count of providing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) services without a license. Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Alfred Nance has scheduled sentencing for October 24.

From 2007 until 2010, while employed at Morgan State as an HVAC technician, Healthington stole over $200,000 in state funds for the purchase of heating and air conditioning equipment which he then used in connection with his personal business. During this same time, Healthington lacked the requisite state license to perform HVAC services in Maryland. Additionally, he stole $13,778 from a customer by never providing the air conditioning and heating units he had been hired to install.

The investigation was conducted by the Attorney General's Criminal Division and the Maryland State Police. In making the announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Maryland State Police Cpl. Sha Brown, Investigative Auditor Harry Schulz and Assistant Attorney General Megan Davey Limarzi for their work on the case.
