Posted: Updated:

A Harrison County jury convicted former Salem city manager David Mayle on six counts of embezzlement, falsifying accounts and conspiracy on Tuesday.

Prosecutors said Mayle and former city clerk Sherry Olenick embezzled thousands of dollars from the city.

The jury heard testimony from the lead investigator, Lieutenant P.B. McCarty of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department and Olenick. Olenick previously pleaded guilty to one count of felony falsifying accounts and felony conspiracy to embezzle and agreed to cooperate against Mayle.

Mayle's sentencing trial is scheduled for December 12 at 9 a.m. in Clarksburg. Mayle will remain free until then on a previously posted $10,000 bond.
