He allegedly told a woman her donation would go toward equipment and sporting goods for a Prince George’s County, Md., charity and promised to put the woman on the charity’s payroll. She said he pressed her and made her feel intimidated so she gave him the money.

    If Texas doesn’t want him, Pittman will be released without bond but under supervision. He’ll have a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, will have to check in with parole once a week and undergo regular drug testing. He’s also been ordered to stay away from any victims.
