AG: Woman Misused Funds Raised in Philando Castile’s Name
ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota's attorney general says a St. Paul professor who led a campaign to pay off student lunch debts in Philando Castile's name spent less than half of the $200,000 she raised on the intended purpose.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison's office filed a civil enforcement action against Pamela Fergus on Thursday. The professor at Metropolitan State University created the online crowdfunding effort a year after Castile was fatally shot during a traffic stop by a St. Anthony officer in 2016.
Castile was known to pay out of pocket for children whose families could not afford to buy their own lunches.
