ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — A former school employee is facing federal charges for allegedly stealing human bones from the anatomy laboratory at Ohio University.
Twenty-eight-year-old Weston Henri Moquin was charged this week with counts of transporting remains across state boundaries and stealing property from a federally funded agency.
Court documents say the Athens man took the bones between July 2011 and June 2012. Defense attorney Keith Yeazel told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1bEjvU9 ) on Friday that his client sold the bones to support a drug habit.
The Dispatch reports a settlement agreement would require Moquin to pay more than $84,000 in restitution.
Yeazel says Moquin in in a drug treatment program.
