OWENSBORO, Ky. – A former church treasurer in Kentucky has been sentenced to 21 months in federal prison and must repay more than $201,000 of the church.
The U. S. Attorney’s office says Delanie L. Tillman, the former treasurer of the Greater Norris Baptist Church in western Kentucky, reached a plea agreement with the prosecutors. The agreement says Tillman made unauthorized transfers and wrote unauthorized checks from the church’s funds from 2004 to 2014.
Tillman was sentenced Monday by chief judge Joseph H. McKinley, Jr. in Owensboro.
U.S. Attorney John Kuhn said the plea agreement ensures Tillman “will pay back every penny that was not to take her.” Tillman has been charged in an 11-count indictment.
The FBI had joined the police in the investigation of the case.
