Former WNJ Worker Guilty of Embezzlement

A former Wilson N. Jones Medical Center employee could face up to six years in prison for embezzlement, tax fraud, and money laundering.

Forty-three-year-old Kevin McDonald is the former director of the bio-medical engineering department at Wilson N. Jones. Yesterday, he pled guilty to several federal charges and admitted to embezzling more than $1 million in 2001 and 2002 and laundering more than $2.5 million.

A pre-sentencing hearing is set for next month.
