NORRISTOWN, Penn. – A jury has convicted the former CEO of United Workers Local 1776 FCU of stealing nearly $34,000 from the CU during her tenure.

Anne L. Clyburn, 44, of Exton, Penn., was found guilty of charges of theft by unlawful taking or disposition, theft by deception, receiving stolen property, tampering with records, and unlawful use of computers in connection with incidents that occurred between 2000 and 2007 while at the CU.

Clyburn’s $25,000 unsecured bail was immediately revoked by the judge and she was transported to county jail while awaiting sentencing. Clyburn, who represented herself at trial, faces a maximum sentence of 22 to 44 years in prison on the charges.

It was alleged during the trial that some of the money stolen by Clyburn came in the form of unauthorized raises and unauthorized checks written for personal expenses over her six and a half years as CEO.
