A Somerset County man accused of stealing more than $33,000 that was donated to his son after a deadly fire used some of the money to pay for escorts, police say.
Tubal Eduardo is charged with theft by failure to make a required disposition of funds.
The school where Tubal Jr. attended kindergarten collected more than $38,350 for him.
During his trial on Thursday, a detective said Eduardo used $7,100 on an escort service.
Eduardo's attorney said he used his son's money to pay fines, living expenses and to buy a car.
