ABINGDON, Virginia — A former assistant town manager of Abingdon faces a prison term and a fine after admitting he used his town-issued credit card to buy groceries and electronics and for other personal purchases.
The government says 37-year-old William Garrett Jackson agreed Monday to pay restitution of more than $76,000 in personal expenses he put on the credit card from 2007 to 2014.
The U.S. attorney's office says Jackson entered a guilty plea in federal court to one count of fraud.
Besides groceries and electronics, prosecutors say Jackson also purchased a subscription to Netflix and paid his personal cell phone bills with the town card.
Jackson could be sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined up to $250,000.
