CLEVELAND (AP) — A Romanian Catholic priest already waiting to be sentenced for stealing from a Cleveland church is now being accused of taking thousands of dollars from an Ohio senior.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/12O0hUN) reports that the attorney for the Rev. Andre Matthews says his client is facing an allegation that he stole more than $100,000 from the accounts of an 88-year-old woman who was a parishioner at his church. Matthews was legally empowered to act on her behalf.
Matthews' attorney told the newspaper he expects his client to plead guilty to a charge in connection with this theft.
The 54-year-old priest is awaiting sentencing for having stolen more than $170,000 from St. Helena Catholic Church. Prosecutors have said Matthews used part of the money to pay credit card bills.
