SAVANNAH, GA -

Daniel Alvin, the subject of a News 3 investigation and Fugitive Files report, and the man who scammed thousands of dollars out of low income and homeless women in Savannah, has pleaded guilty in a Chatham County Court.

In all, Alvin admitted to 19 different charges, and was sentenced to 10 years in jail. He will serve five of those years behind bars and 5 more on probation.

He also must pay $9339 in restitution to his victims. Alvin has two years to pay that money back.

The charges include 7 counts of theft by deception, 4 counts of executing fictitious checks, 4 counts of deposit account fraud, and 4 counts of theft of services.

====================================================================

A man charged with allegedly scamming low income and homeless women was arraigned in Chatham County Superior Court today. Daniel Alvin who reportedly ran an organization to assist poor women with paying rent and utilities is charged with cheating them instead.

 Savannah Chatham police issued warrants for Alvin last summer after more than a dozen women complained they had paid fees up front but received no services. Several women told News 3 they paid Alvin $500 or more. Alvin was later arrested in New York after police say he fled.

 Alvin is now facing a growing list of charges after being indicted by the grand jury. There are at least 16 charges which include 7 charges of theft and deposit fraud and 9 charges of theft by services and theft by deception.
