Former San Diego Mayor Maureen O’Connor acknowledged Thursday in federal court that she misappropriated $2 million from her late husband’s charitable foundation due to a gambling addiction in which she won more than $1 billion but lost even more over nearly a decade.

O’Connor made the acknowledgement in an agreement with the government to defer prosecution for two years while she attempts to repay the debt.

Before entering federal court Thursday, O’Connor defense attorney Gene Iredale said O’Connor suffered a brain tumor, during which time she gambled away nearly a billion dollars of her inheritance, CBS San Diego affiliate KFMB-TV reports.
