Man Steals from Trust Account
A 74-year old former Salamanca man who stole his stepdaughter’s trust account has been sentenced to five years' probation. William Lisman pleaded guilty August 4 to fourth-degree grand larceny. District Attorney Ed Sharkey says Lisman stole money between Aug. 25, 2006, and last Dec. 13 from his 58-year-old stepdaughter’s special-needs bank account, where he was listed as trustee. The woman was awarded $40,000 from a car accident several years ago and Lisman took nearly all the money for his own use. The woman, who is disabled, now lives in an Allegany nursing home. Lisman’s wife is in a Salamanca nursing home and Lisman had relocated to Westfield.
