Embezzlement

The former bookkeeper of an Amherst plastic surgeon has been sentenced for embezzling.

A western Pennsylvania woman has pleaded guilty to stealing $180,000 from the Olean credit union she managed for 20 years.

Despite years of audits and prosecutions, financial people in volunteer fire companies continue to steal from their fire companies, according to New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

Brian Davis, the former Ellicott District representative on the Common Council, could seek a plea deal at a court appearance this week.

Davis faces embezzlement charges for scheming to redirect nearly $50 thousand in federal funds for personal use. According to the News, Davis could face up to ten years in prison, though a deal would lessen that sentence. It could also require that he testify in the federal investigation into City Hall's use of federal funds allocated through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
