After Kevin Robert Lee admitted to embezzling more than $800,000 from the $222 million Florida State University Credit Union, prosecutors revealed new details about how the former lending director used the identity of a credit union colleague and college roommates to steal the money and spent more than half of it to pay for in-app video games.

Lee, 35, of Tallahassee pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to 25 felony counts of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, theft from a lending institution and filing false tax returns. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Aug. 22.  For 20 counts of banks fraud, the maximum sentence is 30 years, a two-year mandatory minimum prison sentence for one count of aggravated ID theft, a maximum of 30 years for one count of theft and a maximum of three years for three counts of filing a false tax return.
