CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A former radio personality pleaded guilty Monday to theft and money laundering.

Former 92.3 The Fan executive producer J.G. Spooner was indicted in July on seven charges. He initially plead not guilty.

A nine-page police report claimed Spooner had more than $7,000 of a GoFundMe account belonging to Allyson Zappe deposited in his personal bank account.

Zappe's friends claim Spooner approached them in February of last year to relaunch a GoFundMe account to help raise additional money for Allyson, who had cystic fibrosis.

They handed control of the account over to Spooner and alleged he kept the donations.

Zappe died in July 2015. 

Spooner also served as the in-arena host for both the Cleveland Gladiators and Lake Erie Monsters at Quicken Loans Arena.

Spooner will be sentenced on Dec. 6.
