CLEVELAND

A Romanian Catholic priest waiting to be sentenced for stealing from a Cleveland church is now being accused of taking thousands of dollars from an Ohio senior.

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that the attorney for the Rev. Andre Matthews says his client is facing an allegation that he stole more than $100,000 from the accounts of an 88-year-old woman who was a parishioner at his church. Matthews was legally empowered to act on her behalf.

Matthews’ attorney told the newspaper he expects his client to plead guilty to a charge in connection with this theft.

The 54-year-old priest is awaiting sentencing for having stolen more than $170,000 from St. Helena Catholic Church. Prosecutors have said Matthews used part of the money to pay credit-card bills.
