From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. District Court, Western District of Kentucky
OWENSBORO, KY (Mon 22 May 2017) - The former treasurer of Greater Norris Baptist Church, located in Henderson County, Kentucky, was sentenced in United States District Court today, by Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr., to 21 months in prison, followed by a three year period of supervised release and was ordered to pay $201,260.02 in restitution, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.
"People contribute to organizations like churches and other non-profits simply because they want to do good in the world," stated United States Attorney John Kuhn. "Stealing funds from these groups is not only criminal, it's disgraceful. This sentence punishes Tillman and insures she will pay back every penny that was not hers to take."
According to the plea agreement, Delanie L. Tillman, of Henderson County, devised a scheme to defraud and obtain money and property by means of false pretenses, from the Greater Norris Baptist Church, between 2004 and June 5, 2014.
Specifically, Tillman was charged, in an 11 count indictment, with making unauthorized wire transfers and writing unauthorized checks to pay for personal expenses using the church's funds.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Weiser and was investigated by the Henderson Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
