A Baton Rouge man is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to federal charges of stealing funds from FEMA that were earmarked for victims of last year's flooding in south Louisiana.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced yesterday that Joe W. Jones entered his plea Tuesday.  He admitted to stealing nearly $14,000 in disaster assistance funds for a Baton Rouge home that was not his primary residence.
