FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A former dietary manager at a state juvenile justice facility has been sentenced to a year in jail for stealing tons of seafood and selling it to restaurants.

Forty-two-year-old Douglas Allen Fairfax of Hagerstown was also ordered to pay restitution for the state at sentencing Wednesday in Frederick County Circuit Court.

The News-Post of Frederick reports that Fairfax was charged in April with stealing more than $90,000 from the Department of Juvenile Services’ Victor Cullen Center in Sabillasville. Prosecutors say he used his state-issued credit card to buy 7.5 tons of frozen crab legs, shrimp and other items, worth more than $90,000.
