An attorney who stole nearly $50,000 from a Fayette County masonic association has been temporarily suspended by the state disciplinary board.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania issued a temporary suspension of Donald B. Moreman’s law license, noting his guilty plea to forgery, theft by deception and theft by unlawful taking.
In April, Moreman, 58, of Connellsville pleaded guilty to stealing $49,594.99 from the Pleasant Valley Masonic Hall Association in Bullskin Township between June 2017 to August 2018.
Investigators said he forged signatures to steal the money, diverting it to himself for personal use.
A Fayette County judge sentenced Moreman to 36 months of intermediate punishment with 18 months on house arrest with electronic monitoring.
Moreman’s attorney said Moreman had already paid all of the funds back to the association in January.
Moreman’s suspension will take effect on Aug. 29.
