CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (AP) - A former county Republican leader in southern New Jersey has pleaded guilty to stealing the savings of a man who lived at the nursing home he owned.

The Press of Atlantic City reports (http://bit.ly/1Hlb9E4 ) that 52-year-old Robert Greco Jr. pleaded guilty Friday to stealing $149,000 from the man at the East Creek Manor Residential Health Care Facility.

Greco previously served as leader of the Cumberland County Republican Party.

He admitted to persuading the man to give him power of attorney and then used his money to pay for business expenses.

He pleaded guilty third-degree theft charges and income-tax related charges were dismissed. The plea deal will allow him to receive probation if he pays back $139,420.56. He had faced up to 20 years in prison.
