ERIE, Pa. — New court documents reveal that Erie City Council President Sonya Arrington purportedly confessed to taking money from her nonprofit organization.

The indictment filed Thursday accuses Arrington of diverting and misusing “at least $70,000” from Mother Against Teen Violence.

According to an affidavit unsealed Monday, “during the interview (with FBI investigators), Arrington admitted that she supplemented her legitimate income with money that had been donated to Mothers Against Teen Violence.”

Arrington is scheduled to appear in federal court on Thursday.
