Fred Draper, a suspended Indiana State University professor, and Willie Ryan, a retired Eli Lilly and Co. accountant, are expected to plead guilty to felony charges Wednesday in Marion Superior Court.Draper and Ryan are the last of the 11 people charged in the two-year probe to enter pleas.Draper, who is ill, will be sentenced later.Eight others have pleaded guilty as well.The plea agreements have drawn praise from scam victims.Court documents show Draper, Ryan and Frechette siphoned $3.57 million from pull-tab sales at the four bingo halls.Investigators say the money stolen from the four operations involves $1.2 million that should have gone to Forest Manor Multi-Service Center, which offers job information and referrals and community outreach for the poor; $1.2 million for Grand United Order of Oddfellows, a charity that Ryan and Draper were involved with; $959,000 for the Indiana State Council of Opportunities Industrialization Centers of America, which offers life skills and pre-employment training; and $191,000 from the Consortium Foundation, which gives college preparation and scholarships.Now, Draper and Ryan will join Frechette in repaying some of what was taken.According to his plea agreement, Draper will pay $400,000 in restitution.
