NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — Still maintaining her innocence, the former CEO of a credit union in Montgomery County, Pa. has been found guilty of using credit union funds to pay some of her personal expenses.

After the two-day, non-jury trial, a judge has convicted Anne Clyburn of theft and related charges.

The 47-year-old Chester County resident was accused of cutting credit union checks to pay her husband’s dental expenses while she was running the United Food and Commercial Workers’ Local 1776 Federal Credit Union, in Plymouth Meeting.

“Clyburn’s a thief,” says Montgomery County prosecutor Steven Latzer.   “She stole money from the credit union and she’s never come clean about it, and she tried to come across with a ridiculous excuse that nobody bought in the courtroom.”

During cross-examination Clyburn told the court she had nothing to do with the checks and believed she was being “set up” by a disgruntled employee.

She was immediately sentenced to three years’ probation. She has already served nine months in jail on these and other charges which were withdrawn, but that conviction (see related story) was overturned last year and she was granted a new trial.
