Former Montgomery County Credit Union CEO Gets Retrial In Embezzlement Case
By Brad Segall
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. (CBS) - The former CEO of a Montgomery County credit union is back before a judge for her retrial on charges that she allegedly used credit union funds to pay some of her personal expenses.
Anne Clyburn was convicted in 2010 of stealing more than $32,000 from the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 Federal Credit Union (see related story).
She served nine months behind bars, but the conviction was overturned last year and she was granted a new trial.
Prosecutor Steven Latzer says he’s withdrawn some of the charges related to Clyburn allegedly giving herself unauthorized raises and using a credit card to pay charges that weren’t approved by the Board.
She’s accused of cutting credit union checks to pay dental bills for her husband.
The reduced charges involve much less money than the previous conviction. The trial, which opened Thursday morning, is being heard by a judge rather than a jury.
