Richard Hatch trial hones in on improper use of charity donations
UPI News Service, 01/14/2006
The second day of "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch's federal trial in Providence, R.I., focused on whether he improperly used funds from his own charity.
The first $1 million "Survivor" winner could end up in prison if he's convicted of failing to pay taxes on his winnings, money he made from personal appearances and a rental home, and diverting money from the charity he set up to fund an outdoor adventure program for teenagers.
The Newport, R.I., resident has pleaded innocent to the charges.
