A Bowie man could get up to three years in prison for stealing $500,000 worth of Metro coins and cash from farecard machines.
Horace McDade, of Bowie, pleaded guilty in March. McDade and another former Metro employee, John V. Haile of Woodbridge, VA, then used the money to buy a significant amount of instant lottery tickets, according to FOX45 Baltimore.
The men could receive up to three years for their roles in the theft. They will face a judge today for sentencing.
According to court papers, Haile said he has been treated for a gambling addiction, the news station reported.
