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.

During Friday's testimony, eight witnesses told what they knew about funds having to do with Hatch's charity, Horizon Bound, the Providence Journal reported Saturday.

After bankers testified Hatch deposited checks made out to Horizon Bound into his own personal account, his attorney maintained it was his client's right to determine how the money was spent.

The trial was scheduled to resume Tuesday.
