Former community development leader gets prison for theft

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The former executive director of a Connecticut community development agency will serve five months in prison for stealing nearly $98,000 from the organization. Darrin LaMore, of Enfield, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Hartford. He also was ordered to pay restitution to the town of Enfield and the state. Prosecutors say LaMore stole the money between 2012 and 2015 when he was executive director of the Enfield Community Development Corp. Prosecutors say he improperly paid his salary with federal grants and falsified vendor invoices. LaMore pleaded guilty. His lawyer says the agency did not set aide enough money to pay LaMore's salary.
