LIDO BEACH - A Rockville Centre financial planner accused of stealing money from a camp for special-needs children has been sentenced.

Drew Morgan, 44, was sentenced to 3 1/3 to 10 years in prison. Morgan was also ordered to pay back approximately $1.3 million to two nonprofits that raise money for the Camp A.N.C.H.O.R. special-needs camp and $475,000 to two sisters who were his clients. Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas made the announcement Wednesday after Morgan, of Rockville Centre, was convicted of embezzling $1.8 million.

Investigators say he stole the money between 2008 and 2013, using his position as treasurer at two nonprofits to withdraw funds.

Morgan pleaded guilty to the top charge against him, grand larceny, in March.

Officials say Morgan used the stolen money to pay for a membership in the Hempstead Golf Club, airline travel and hotel stays, restaurants, credit and debit card purchases, appliances, home furnishings and personal expenses such as groceries and gasoline.

Morgan was arrested on Oct. 2, 2013.
