Former San Diego mayor Maureen O'Connor, center, walks to federal court in San Diego Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, with her attorney Eugene Iredale, left. O'Connor admitted in federal court that she misappropriated $2 million from her late husband's charitable foundation due to a gambling addiction in which won more than $1 billion but lost even more over nearly a decade. O'Connor made the acknowledgement Thursday in an agreement with the government to defer prosecution for two years while she attempts to repay the debt.
