Former church official sentenced to prison for embezzling

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A former accounting clerk at a church in Onalaska has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for stealing from her congregation.

Fifty-nine-year-old Barbara Snyder, of West Salem, was accused of stealing more than $800,000 from St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church when she was responsible for depositing church collections and maintaining accounting records between 2006 and 2015. Authorities said she used the money to gamble at casinos.

Snyder pleaded guilty in August to wire fraud and falsifying tax returns. Court documents show that during her sentencing Thursday she also was ordered to pay about $832,000 in restitution.

  1. St Pats in Onalaska WI would be shut down completely. They are inbred/hybrid satanic freaks who are out to destroy the planet. Last round I was imprisoned there the freaks celebrated Father Rossiter being gunned down by putting it on their walls. The freaks were making one of their torture prisoners beg for toilet bowl cleaner at Christmas. They use lobotomy to make intellects as dumb as they are, and I would still go into shock looking at the disgust.
