GREENEVILLE, Tenn. — A federal jury has convicted an ex-U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs worker of defrauding a disabled and incompetent veteran of $680,000-plus.

U.S. Attorney Doug Overbey’s office says 44-year-old Jonesborough resident Kenneth Richard Devore was convicted last week of wire fraud, mail fraud, financial conflict of interest, stealing public money and false statements.
