UNH Assistant Professor Sentenced for Stealing Grant Money

UNH

A story we’ve been following for a year is concluding. On March 28th, 2018 we reported on the US District Attorney’s Office for New Hampshire charging two employees of UNH with theft of federal grant money. That case has finally reached an end.

Today, 47-year-old Jichun Zhang, or Durham, was sentenced to two years’ probation for submitting 7,000.00 dollars in fake credit card receipts. Juchun used his business credit card at Amazon.com, PayPal, and Apple to buy himself items with federal grant money. He has reportedly returned all the money he “misappropriated.”

Hailong Zhang, 44, of Nottingham, was also charged. He used his business credit card to launder grant money into Amazon gift cards. Hailong then used the gift cards to buy items for himself. He stole 82,000.00 dollars from taxpayers and is scheduled for sentencing tomorrow.
