AG and ex-leader of abortion rights group reach agreement

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York attorney general's office has reached a $20,000 settlement with the ex-leader of an abortion-rights group who was accused of spending charitable funds on personal items.

The civil complaint filed in 2012 followed Kelli Conlin's guilty plea a year earlier to falsifying business records, a case where she paid $75,000 in restitution to NARAL Pro-Choice New York and its affiliated foundation that she led from 1992 through 2010.

Claiming Conlin's misspending amounted to $250,000, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman requested she repay all of it, plus interest and legal costs.

The settlement announced Friday requires Conlin to pay $20,000 restitution and never again be an officer of a New York nonprofit. She'll also drop her claim of a hostile work environment against her ex-employers.

Conlin did not initially reply to a request for comment.
