Former employee embezzled a million dollars from New York diocese

| October 2, 2012

A devout New York Catholic referred to in media reports as an “evil little old lady” has admitted she swindled a million dollars from the Church and now faces up to four years in jail.

Anita Collins from the Bronx has accepted a negotiated plea deal for embezzling from the Church according to reports.

Collins admitted to embezzling $1 million from the Archdiocese of New York, according to prosecutors.

She worked in the finance office of the New York Archdiocese from 2003 but was fired last December when the fraud was recovered.

CBS New York reports that Collins pleaded guilty to charges that she falsified records and wrote checks to herself.
