Paul Morgan pleads guilty

Sentencing has been postponed for the former executive director of the CNY SPCA who stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from his former employer.

According to the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office, Paul Morgan will be sentenced to four to 12 years in prison on March 8.

After pleading guilty on Jan. 12, he was initially slated for sentencing in February.

The DA’s office told NewsChannel 9 that sentencing was delayed because Morgan’s attorney is out of the state.

Morgan faced charges including grand larceny, falsifying business records, and tax fraud.

He must also pay $591,852.31 in restitution, along with nearly $40,000 for taxes he failed to pay.

Morgan initially faced a 53-count indictment alleging that he pilfered $475,860 from the SPCA over the course of several years.

Two others involved in the case, Nicole Cafarchio and Taylor Gilkey, had already pleaded guilty.

He is being held without bail.
