Former Church Worker in Springfield, Ohio Sentenced In Theft

Authorities said a worker from a Springfield church has admitted to stealing more than $300,000, and she was sentenced on Tuesday.

Anita Diane Maddy appeared in court and was very apologetic and remorseful for what she did.
The judge sentenced Maddy to 17 months in prison.
News Center 7 talked with the past of Christ Chapel Church of God when the theft was made known.
Pastor Bernard Cook said, “We’re all heart broken. We loved her.”
Cook said over the course of six years, Maddy stole credit cards, loan accounts and church ATM cards from the church.
The Clark County Prosecutor said he is pleaded with the outcome.
Cook said when he was made known of the theft, the church immediately put safe guards in place to make sure this type of theft does not happen again.
