Judge To Rule On Virginia Executive Mansion Chef Charges

Play associated audio

Todd Schneider, the former chef to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, is claiming in court papers that he was forced to cater private and political events and do personal shopping for the governor's family.

Schneider says that as payment for his catering services at non-state events, he was told to take food from the executive mansion's kitchen, which he is accused of embezzling. He lists the governor's political action committee as one of the organizations that did not pay him for his catering services.

Schneider is making the allegations in a Richmond Circuit Court brief supporting his motion to dismiss four felony embezzlement charges against him. A hearing on that motion is scheduled Monday.
