Probation for woman in church theft

| February 11, 2012

Circuit Judge Daniel Murphy sentenced Molly Louise Marteney on Thursday to 36 months of supervised probation in connection with funds discovered missing at the First Assembly of God in Lebanon.

Marteney, 62, will not go to prison, nor will she have to reimburse the church.

In 2007 when the thefts occurred, Marteney held several positions at the church, including treasurer and bookkeeper. She also was a church member.

Marteney, who was represented by Albany attorney Forrest Reid, pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated theft, a Class B felony, and misapplication of entrusted property, a Class A misdemeanor, at a Jan. 26 settlement conference, which the Democrat-Herald was not allowed to attend.

The judged dismissed other counts brought against her by a Linn County grand jury: two counts of falsifying business records, a second charge of first-degree aggravated theft and a second charge of misapplication of entrusted property.
