Former St. Louis Community College Employee Steals over $7.5 million from the Missouri Job Training

Former St. Louis Community College Employee Steals over $7.5 million from the Missouri Job Training Program


St. Louis, MO Donald L. Robison, 57, Ballwin, MO, pleaded guilty to 15 counts of wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering before United States District Judge Stephen R. Clark. Sentencing is scheduled for November 12, 2019.

According to his plea agreement, from August 1998 through November 2018, Robison stole millions of dollars allocated for New and Retained Job Training Programs established by the Missouri Department of Economic Development. Robison stole program-allocated funds from both the Missouri Department of Revenue and St. Louis Community College. Robison subsequently moved the stolen funds between bank and investment accounts to conceal their origin.

"All the money stolen was meant for a program designed for people who wanted to better themselves by learning new skills to become employable," said Special Agent in Charge Richard Quinn of the FBI St. Louis Division. "Instead, Donald Robison helped himself to millions of taxpayer dollars and deprived the program of money destined to help Missouri workers."

Wire fraud and mail fraud carry a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment for each count and a fine of $250,000 or both. Money laundering carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment for each count and a fine of $250,000 or both. In determining the actual sentence, a Judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provides recommended sentencing ranges. Restitution to the victims is also mandatory.

1. I'm somewhat in awe of that man.

He got away with a fuck of a lot of money over some 20 years.
