Man pleads guilty to stealing from farmers market

•  Law Center     updated  2014/03/17 14:40

Prosecutors say a former Glendale city councilman has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $305,000 from a farmers market.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office says 55-year-old John Drayman entered a plea Wednesday to felony charges of embezzlement, filing a false tax return and perjury.

While serving as the director of the Montrose farmers market, Drayman was accused of collecting proceeds from the weekly event and skimming thousands of dollars before turning the money over to the market's treasurer.

Drayman was indicted in 2012 on 28 counts dating from 2004 to 2011. The remaining 25 counts will be dismissed when he is sentenced April 7.

He is expected to be sentenced to a year in jail and ordered to pay $304,853 in restitution and $14,016 to the state tax board.
