Morgan also allegedly stole $130,558, between June 2010 and December 2012, from the Corporation for the Socially and Exceptionally Challenged Kids, a nonprofit corporation that was created to raise money for Camp ANCHOR and Impact OASIS. Morgan served as the corporation’s president and treasurer when he allegedly withdrew money from its accounts without authorization. Impact OASIS is an organization that promotes the acceptance and inclusion of autistic people by establishing farming centers that offer employment, housing and community interaction.
These two thefts were uncovered by investigators examining Morgan’s bank records as part of a separate investigation into the alleged theft of $475,000 from two sisters for whom he worked as a financial planner. Morgan was charged with stealing $250,000 that was supposed to be invested for a client between October 2008 and January 2010, and another $225,000 that was to be invested for her sister between April 2008 and January 2010. In both cases, Rice said, Morgan kept the money for himself.
According to the D.A.’s office, Morgan used the stolen money to pay for a membership in the Hempstead Golf Club, airline travel and hotel stays, restaurants, credit and debit card purchases, appliances, home furnishings and personal expenses such as groceries and gasoline.
Gary Farrell, Morgan’s attorney, declined to comment.
