Stepdad robs teenage supermodel

From Newsday:

WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- The stepfather of supermodel Maggie Rizer has been ordered by a Jefferson County judge to pay her more then $3 million in restitution for funds he stole from her bank accounts.

The agreement approved by Jefferson County Judge Kim H. Martusewicz on Friday concludes the criminal case against John R. Breen Jr., who pleaded guilty Oct. 22 to first-degree grand larceny, second-degree grand larceny, third-degree grand larceny, first-degree scheming to defraud and two counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Breen had been accused of stealing millions of dollars from Rizer, over whose bank accounts he had power of attorney. He claims to have spent much of the money playing Quick Draw at local bars.

I find this article interesting for two reasons. First, it is another example of a parent not only abrigating parental responsibility but living on the backs of his child.

Second, how do you spend millions of dollars playing Quick Draw at local bars? And if you have millions of dollars, why are you playing Quick Draw in the first place?
