Rep. George Santos Admits To Stealing Checks In Brazil In Plea Deal

According to The New York Times, Republican Congressman George Santos from New York has reportedly resolved one of his legal cases in Brazil.

Santos had faced charges in a suburb outside Rio de Janeiro for allegedly stealing checks to purchase clothing and other goods in 2008.

On Thursday, Santos signed a deal with Brazilian prosecutors that he would confess to the charges and pay nearly $5,000 in fines and restitution in exchange for the charges being dropped.
