Man charged with stealing $75K from his orphaned nephews

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — A California man is accused of abusing his position as trustee on his deceased sister's estate and stealing $75,000 from the money left to care for her children, according to reports.

Michael DeLeon, 46, of Oceanside, Calif., was entrusted with the estate of his sister Elizabeth Warrington after her death. It was to be used for the care of her two young sons, who live in Ocean City, Shore News Today reports. Authorities claim, however, that between 2007 and 2014 he stole from that estate and an investigation by the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office led to his arrest last week.

DeLeon was apprehended in California on May 10 and faces extradition to Cape May County on charges of second degree theft, which is subject to a 5 to ten-year prison sentence, according to the Cape May County Herald.
