ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The former president of the Ethical Society of Police, an organization that represents African American St. Louis police officers, has been indicted on multiple fraud charges.

Darren Randal Wilson is accused of misappropriation of over $80,000 from the organization between July 2013 and December 2014.

According to the indictment, Wilson used the money for personal purposes, including transmitting some of the money by Fed Wire, Western Union and PayPal.  Wilson presented falsified information to members of the organization to hide his fraudulent activity, officials said.

On April 14, a federal grand jury indicted the 41-year-old on nine felony counts of wire fraud.

If convicted, each count carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.
