DINWIDDIE, VA (WWBT) - A Dinwiddie man is accused of stealing more than $143,000 from a fund set up for a child fighting a rare blood disorder.
To cover the costs, hundreds sent in donations to the Friends of Baylor fund. Now, Abernathy, a family friend, is accused of stealing from those efforts.
Deputies say Abernathy turned himself in, walking straight into the Sheriff's Office with his family. The court released him under $5,000 bond.
Abernathy was not at his Dinwiddie home when NBC12 tried to reach him for comment.
