Three people have pleaded guilty to theft-related charges tied to managing an older condo complex in North Bay Village.

Former condo manager Rachel Badilla, her stepfather Robert Dugger and her mother Rachel Dugger were part of an alleged condo association fraud scheme that involved writing a fraudulent $4,500 check, stealing new appliances from units, and fraudulent short sale of the Duggers’ condo at the Kennedy House, 1865 79th Street Causeway in Miami Beach.

Badilla pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grand theft, and grand theft in the second and third degrees. Her stepfather Robert Dugger and her mother Rachel Dugger both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grand theft, according to a press release from Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle’s office.

All three agreed to give up their licenses and stay of out the business during their respective five years of probation, and the victims will receive restitution, although how much is unknown.

Local 10 reported in 2015 that Robert Dugger, a former North Bay Village commissioner, was removed from office after he was charged in a corruption case and convicted of two misdemeanors. He reportedly has a history of complaints as a condo manager.

In September, Miami-Dade police officers arrested a former accounting assistant accused of stealing nearly $150,000 from a Hammocks condo association in Kendall.  – Katherine Kallergis
