Pathetic: Businessmen accused of cheating sick kids out of money

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - 19 Action News has discovered charges against two suburban businessmen accused of pocketing big bucks meant for charity.

The men are accused of cheating workers and sick kids out of $52,000 bucks!

Last winter, 19 Action News got wind of the investigation but couldn't get answers. Now we can!

Records show Kevin Beaver and William Snyder ran ReMax Classic Realty in Broadview Heights. The two are suspected of collecting donations for years from real estate agents for every property sold.

The businessmen said the money would go to the Children's Miracle Network, a group helping sick kids nationwide including here in Northeast Ohio.

Cuyahoga County prosecutors raided the real estate offices and slapped both men with charges.

Kevin Beaver pleaded guilty to theft by deception and charges against William Snyder are pending.

Prosecutors say the men have paid back the $52,000 and claim they've "done nothing wrong."

Yeah right, try telling that to the kids!
