Former Hamlin Twp. treasurer is sentenced to jail

April 24, 2014

SMETHPORT – Julie Sue Graham-Olson, 54, has been sentenced to McKean County Jail for using Hamlin Township money as her own while serving as the township’s secretary-treasurer for nearly four years.
In a ruling Thursday in McKean County Court, President Judge John Pavlock sentenced the defendant to spend between nine months and 23.5 months in the county jail near Smethport.
The defendant—known to most as Julie Graham—also was ordered to make restitution of $77,000 to the township. Pavlock directed Graham to perform 420 hours of community service—if she is able to do so because of her medical issues. She will serve two years of probation when released from jail, the judge ruled.
