A Cuyahoga County Grand Jury has indicted former WKRK 92.3 FM The Fan executive producer J.G. Spooner on seven charges including money laundering. Spooner is currently out of jail on a $10,000 bond.

Spooner is also the in-arena host for both the Cleveland Gladiators and Lake Erie Monsters at Quicken Loans Arena.

He was initially charged with money laundering in Parma Municipal Court and was bound over to the Grand Jury in Cleveland.

Cleveland19News reports the grand jury handed down additional charges including money laundering and aggravated theft.

The nine-page police report claims Spooner had more than $7,000 of a GoFundMe account belonging to Allyson Zappe deposited in his personal bank account.

Zappe's friends claim Spooner approached them in February of last year to relaunch a GoFundMe account to help raise additional money for Allyson, who had Cystic Fibrosis.

They handed control of the account over to Spooner and allege he kept the donations.

Allyson died in July of last year.

He is back in court on April 27th.
