By | May 18, 2022

An assistant Episcopal Church treasurer and CPA in Wilkes-Barre has been sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to make restitution following his conviction for embezzlement.

David Williams, 64, of Park Avenue, Wilkes-Barre, was convicted of stealing $20,000 from the church. A forensic audit revealed his theft totaled $76,659.11 from 2011 to 2018, but the majority was outside the state’s statute of limitations.

Williams admitted to the theft, while his wife blamed it on rising medical bills. Initially, he admitted to stealing only $10,000.

The theft was discovered when it installed new accounting software and discovered that numbers did not add up.
