Schabarum makes probation progress

Former Los Angeles County Supervisor Pete Schabarum has completed part of his probation for evading taxes and has paid $60,000 in restitution, a judge said.

Superior Court Judge Charles Horan this week said Schabarum has completed 250 hours of community service required under his sentence.

He still must complete six months of unsupervised probation.

Schabarum, 68, was accused of embezzling nearly $50,000 from a charity group that he founded after leaving office. He allegedly used the money to pay for expensive vacations.

He pleaded no contest in June to three counts of felony tax evasion. Under the plea bargain, prosecutors dropped charges of perjury and grand theft by embezzlement.

Schabarum has paid more than $9,300 in state taxes that he allegedly owed, but said he is angry because the Franchise Tax Board is demanding an additional $7,000.
