Fast food executive embezzled thousands to pay for phone sex, prostitutes

The president and chief executive of Wings to Go, a fast food franchise headquartered in Severna Park, pleaded guilty to wire fraud Monday for embezzling $885,000 from the company to pay for telephone sex and prostitutes over a six-year period, the Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

From 2006 through this year, Mark Chandler Goodnow, 55, claimed to have spent nearly $832,000 on business advertising, but the money really went to three phone sex operators in Texas to pay their fees and personal expenses, according to his plea agreement. Another $53,000 went toward Goodnow’s private affairs in Maryland, including “sex with prostitutes,” the court document claims.

Goodnow, who lives in Pasadena, faces up to 20 years in prison at his sentencing, set for Oct. 30. As part of his plea deal, he agreed to pay restitution of $885,000.
