Junction City man pleads guilty to stealing from Ft. Riley family fund

TOPEKA (KSNT) – A 59 year old Junction City man has admitted he stole money from a fund created to help Army families at Ft. Riley.

Michael Steffens pleaded guilty Monday to taking the money while employed as a business manager for the U.S. Ramy’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation program.

Steffens managed the change fund, which was made up of non-appropriated funds generated from the fund’s sponsored programs and activities. He admitted to stealing about $62,000 in cash and coins from August 2013 through August 2014.

The fun provides programs and services to soldiers and their families at the sprawling military base.

Sentencing is set for February 9th, 2015. In a plea agreement, Steffens faces two years’ probation and restitution in an amount that’s yet to be determined.
