CEO of Buffalo wings firm indicted for embezzlement

The head of Wings to Go, a Buffalo wings franchise restaurant company based in Severna Park that has outlets in 12 states and Washington, was indicted Tuesday for embezzling $885,000 from the company — money that he allegedly used to pay for telephone sex and prostitutes, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Baltimore.

Mark Chandler Goodnow, 55, of Pasadena, faces one count of wire fraud for writing hundreds of corporate checks from 2006 to 20011 to pay three Texas women for phone sex, as well as personal expenses for one of the women, the indictment alleges.

The chief executive officer is also accused of using corporate funds to hire prostitutes in Maryland. He allegedly concealed the payments by reporting them as advertising expenses. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
