A federal jury convicted an accountant Tuesday of stealing nearly $220,000 from the Hoya Federal Credit Union, where he worked.

Under federal guidelines, Reginald A. Clark, 41, of the District, faces a likely sentence of 51 to 63 months in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 28 by U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton.

Clark was convicted of bank fraud, wire fraud and making false records between 2001 and 2003.

Kenard Walston, 40, a cousin of Clark's; and Walston's wife Tanya Hubbard, 32, of Norwich, Conn., are awaiting trial on other counts in the case, according to a statement by U.S. Attorney for the District Ronald C. Machen Jr.

When people steal from financial institutions or other type of employer, they almost always get caught due to audit trails. It's hard to believe that there are people who don't realize this. Very few people get away with embezzlement, and nor should they.
