OFrank Oldham Jr., the former executive director of the National Association of People with AIDS ( NAPWA ), was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to embezzlement, according to the Washington Blade.
A Montgomery County, Maryland, circuit court judge sentenced Oldham April 4 for the incidents, which allegedly took place in 2012. Oldham was active in a number of organizations and agencies across the country, including stints in Chicago as executive director of Horizons Community Services ( which later became Center on Halsted ) and assistant commissioner at the Chicago Department of Public Health.
In September 2015, Oldham was subject of a six-count indictment for stealing between $10,000-100,000 from NAPWA, which later filed chapter 7 bankruptcy. Oldham admitted to charging $11,238 on a misappropriated NAPWA credit card, but did not admit guilt in any other allegations.
Judge Steven G. Salant sentenced Oldham to five years in jail, but suspended all but six months. Oldham was also sentenced to three years' probation upon his release.
