Palmetto Man Guilty of Campaign Fund Theft



Randolph Maddox, the 42-year-old former campaign treasurer for Republican congressional hopeful Nancy Detert, who jetted off to South America with more than $90,000 from Detert's campaign account in April, pleaded guilty Wednesday to wrongful conversion of campaign funds, Tampa-based U.S. Attorney Paul Perez announced.

He faces up to five years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release. Much of the money he stole has been returned.
