EASTON, Pa. - A man accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Pennsylvania Water Rescue has pleaded guilty and learned his fate.
Marvin McCammon pleaded guilty to theft by failure to make required disposition of funds, according to the Northampton County district attorney's office.
McCammon of Bethlehem was able to pay $29,825 in restitution, which was the amount of money he was accused of stealing, said officials, who noted that the money would be deposited Friday.
McCammon was sentenced to two years probation. He will also be required to pay additional costs and fines, and officials said if he pays them earlier, his probation may be cut short.
McCammon stole the money from the Pennsylvania Water Rescue during the time he was serving as the organization's president, police said. McCammon admitted he took the money from fundraisers, bank accounts and credit cards, investigators said.
His wife, Jacqueline Lilly-McCammon, served the Bethlehem Fire Department for 26 years. She was poised to become the city's first female fire chief earlier this year, but she subsequently withdrew her name from consideration.
