WASHINGTON (AP) -- The former manager of a non-profit's technology department has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $150,000.

Fifty-five-year-old Paul F. Kaufman of Stafford, Va., pleaded guilty to theft concerning a program receiving federal funds on Wednesday in federal court in Washington. He faces up to 30 months in prison at sentencing May 8.

According to the government's evidence, Kaufman was authorized to approve work from outside vendors and direct payment to them.

Prosecutors say Kaufman formed two companies, submitted invoices to the non-profit and authorized payments.
