Former UH Foundation Employee Pleads Guilty to ID Theft

A former University of Hawaii Foundation employee who used his access as a scholarship administrator to settle a gambling debt, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of identity theft. Thirty-four-year-old Dodge Watson entered his plea in district court. His attorney Eric Seitz said Watson created a scholarship at his job at the UH and diverted the money from the scholarship to pay off his $2,000  gambling debt to his bookie. The incident happened in December 2012. Watson has since been fired.
