The Philadelphia Daily News reported Dennis Powell, a former fugitive with an arrest record, finally paid restitution for a 20-year-old case involving theft and forgery. Powell had been Philadelphia's district director of the state Board and Probation and Parole but resigned two months ago after the board found out about his past criminal record.
Dennis Powell's case occurred in the late 1980s. He was a manager for a loan company known as ITT Financial Corporation, which had offices in Sunbury and Scranton. Powell was accused of creating loans to fake people and embezzling loan payments from ITT customers. Authorities claimed he had stolen nearly $5,300 from the company.
