DENVER (AP) — A judge has ordered a Colorado man accused of running a fraudulent national breast cancer charity to return $1.89 million in gross receipts and pay $4 million in civil penalties.
The Colorado Attorney General's Office says District Judge Shelley Gilman handed down her ruling against Boobies Rock! founder Adam Shryock (SCHREYE'-ock) on Thursday and issued an injunction barring him from ever working on or near a charitable solicitation again.
The Attorney General's office filed a complaint against Shryock and his businesses in 2013, saying they were committing charitable fraud. He was accused of misleading customers around the country into thinking more of their money was going to breast cancer charities.
Shryock is currently serving another sentence on contempt of court charges.
