Lewis Clinton was convicted Tuesday by an Alameda County Superior Court jury on seven charges, including grand theft, money laundering and tax evasion.
During a three-week trial, prosecutors said the 60-year-old Clinton stole $590,000 from the Allen Temple Baptist Church in East Oakland from 2007 to 2013, while he was the CFO of AC Transit.
Clinton spent the pilfered money on house loans, travel, car expenses, his children’s private school tuition, a golf club membership and other personal expenditures, according to prosecutors.
After the jury announced its verdict, Judge Scott Patton ordered that Clinton be immediately taken into custody and held without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.
He had been out on $100,000 bail after being arrested and charged in April 2014.
He’s scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 8 at the Fremont Hall of Justice.
