Former treasurer of Lowellville Rod and Gun Club pleads guilty to theft

Local News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman accused of taking money from a local sporting club pleaded guilty Thursday in court.

Lisa Doyle pleaded guilty to an aggravated theft charge. 

Doyle was charged with stealing about $68,000 from the Lowellville Rod and Gun Club over several months while serving as treasurer.

While insurance covered most of the money taken — $55,000 — she will have to pay restitution for the rest. 

Club President Russ Myers said members feel betrayed.

“I mean, it still hurts. No matter whether we get all our money back or not, we were deceived, and you know, we had a lot of trust in her, and that was taken away,” he said. “So I mean, ultimately, we’re moving forward. We’re doing better.” 

Doyle will be sentenced on June 22. 

Prosecutors are recommending a six-month jail sentence, followed by four and a half years of probation.
