The Allegheny County District Attorney's office charged a Moon man with stealing more than $60,000 from a Pittsburgh-based charity where he volunteered as treasurer.
Joshua DeNinno, 34, faces charges of theft and misapplication of entrusted property. Police said he took $60,897 from the Pittsburgh Planned Giving beginning in 2009, moving money from the charity's bank account to a personal account, and used the money for personal expenses.
After a charity board member emailed DeNinno about the money in July 2011, according to a criminal complaint, DeNinno began paying back the money, but stopped in September, almost $8,500 short. The charity sued, police said, and DeNinno repaid the rest of the money in February.
The DA's office charged him May 31, months after the president of the charity went to authorities.
DeNinno couldn't be reached for comment this morning.
According to police, DeNinno is treasurer for the North Shore Community Alliance and the Samaritan Counseling Center in Sewickley, and also co-founder of the charity Lend-A-Hand for Appalachia in West Virginia.
