Case dismissed in charity fraud allegations

(KAIR)--All charges filed against a longtime Salvation Army of Atchison County volunteer last year have been dismissed.

According to court documents pertaining to the allegations of forgery made against Pamela Bilderback, the charges were dismissed in November of last year. A reason for the dismissal is not stated in the documents.

The Atchison County resident was arrested by Atchison Police in February of last year, in connection with crimes Bilderback allegedly committed in December, 2022, with the allegation made at that time that she had stolen a donation intended for the Salvation Army.

Originally charged with forgery, theft by deception, criminal use of a financial card, and computer crimes, Bilderback saw those charges dismissed by the November decision of the Atchison County District Court. She apparently did pay restitution but the dollar amount is not stated in the online court documents.

The delay in relaying the information regarding the dismissal was caused by the October, 2023 disruption of the Kansas Courts online files due to a cybersecurity attack.

   Well, it’s about time that this happened! Salvation Army should be ashamed of themselves for trying to pin false allegations/ charges on this individual. Lots of wasted time & energy that employees of the Salvation Army could’ve used to help others in the community! Instead they lost a wonderful & dedicated employee!!
