Four men accused of stealing almost $6 million from Columbia University were convicted Tuesday, according to reports.
George Castro, Walter Stephens, Jr., Jeremy Dieudonne, and Joseph Pineras tampered with the Ivy League school's bill payment system in October and November 2010 re routing millions of dollars meant for New York Presbyterian Hospital.
The money landed in a bank account owned by Castro's information technology business, and was later distributed into accounts held by Dieudonne and Stephens.
Pineras, an employee at Columbia, was a clerk in the finance department. He reportedly received about $10,000 for his efforts.
During the jury trial, fingers were also pointed at the man who testified against them, Moise Jean-Paul. He was a coworker of Pineras in Columbia's finance department.
The four men will receive their sentence on September 24th.
