John Runowicz, former budget coordinator for New York University's chemistry department, was charged Wednesday with submitting $409,000 in bogus expenses -- and succeeding for about five years in fooling his employers, The New York Daily News reported.

His lawyer declined to comment on the case, but Runowicz pleaded not guilty.
