LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man admits to $110,817.74 of money laundering. Chad W. Read pleaded guilty this previous week in federal court.
Court records say he helped his ex-wife Emily Read steal money from the Reaction Fitness Club of Lubbock. The court records say Emily Read was a book-keeper for the club.
The records also say Chad Read helped her with a cover up after the fact. Chad Read has paid back all but $15,000 of the stolen money. He'll be sentenced at a later date. The statutory maximum is 10 years in prison.
Emily Read was sentenced to almost three and-a-half years in federal prison last week.
