On January 21, 2020, detectives from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, with the assistance of the Wall Township Police Department, arrested William Donald, 61, of Oceanport, on a complaint charging him with Theft by Unlawful Taking, a second degree crime and Falsifying or Tampering with Records, a fourth degree crime. 

An investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the Wall Township Police Department, revealed that from June, 2016 until February 2019, the defendant misappropriated $155,577.12 from a pain management center located in Wall Township, while employed as an Office Administrator.  As an Office Administrator, the defendant opened a point of sale machine, in his name, claiming he was the sole owner of the practice.  A point of sale machine is an electronic device used to process card payments at retail locations.  The funds for the point of sale machine came from the Pain Management Center’s bank accounts.    The defendant used the stolen funds to pay personal bills, which included his personal vehicle; pay for his sons’ rent, and bills incurred on a property he owned in Vermont.

If convicted on the second degree crime, the defendant faces five to ten years in a New Jersey State Prison.  If convicted on the fourth degree crime, the defendant faces up to 18 months in a New Jersey State Prison.
