GREELEY — A former funeral director has admitted he sold fake funeral arrangements to 14 elderly people in Greeley.

Paul Acuna pleaded guilty in Weld County District court on Thursday and agreed to pay restitution to all victims as part of a plea agreement.

As owner and operator of Paul's Funeral Service in Greeley, Acuna presold funeral arrangements to residents, taking more than $31,000 for services to be provided upon their death.

He promised the victims that the money would be held in trust and if his business closed, the service would be transferred to another funeral home.

Sentencing is set for January.
