LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former U of L accountant who was promoted as Executive Director of the Department of Family and Geriatric Medicine at the University of Louisville School of Medicine pleaded guilty to federal charges Friday, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Perry "Chad" Vaughn of Sellersburg, Ind. admitted to diverting contractual checks and patient payments to the University Family and Geriatric Medicine Associates account, and then withdrawing $2,809,489 for his own personal use and benefit, the release states. Authorities say he also pleaded guilty to charges of theft and bribery in programs that receive federal funds, money laundering, mail fraud and filing false federal income tax returns.

Vaughn allegedly created false bank reconciliations and bank statements to hide the issuance of checks to himself.

If convicted at trial, Vaughn could have faced up to 55 years in prison, a 16 year period of supervised release and a fine of $1,250,000.
