Roosevelt Hairston Jr., the former general counsel for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, was charged Thursday with one count each of mail fraud, money laundering and filing a false tax return.

According to the information filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Hairston used his senior positions at CHOP to embezzle $1.7 million from the hospital between 1999 and 2011. The information alleges Hairston created eight “shell companies,” including Educational Strategies and The Children’s Research Alliance, for the purposes of stealing the money through false invoices he created for those companies.
