Legal-scales-books-gavel-Image-1024x681[1]BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – The State Board of Funeral Directors has released information on the charges which resulted in their revoking the license of a Brockway Funeral Director.

William L. Wills, of Brockway, Jefferson County, was revoked because he was convicted of Wills, William L. 13-48-06093 OK or pleading guilty or nolo contendere to any such offense.

The agency released information on the license being revoked last week and has now issued details on the charges associated with that action.

According to court documents, Wills pleaded guilty to a charge of issuing bad checks, a first-degree misdemeanor, July 20, 2004, in Allegheny County. He was sentenced to two years probation, payment of $1,192.00 in costs, and $1,428.50 in restitution in that case.

Court documents indicate Wills also pleaded guilty to charges of theft by deception and deceptive business practices, both first-degree misdemeanors, on February 28, 2005, in Westmoreland County. He was sentenced to two years probation, payment of costs of $1,191.35, payment of restitution of $1,360.50, to undergo drug and alcohol evaluation and follow recommended treatment, and to have no contact with the victim.

Court documents indicate the board revoked Wills license and decreed he “shall immediately cease practicing as a funeral director in the commonwealth and shall not indicate any ability to practice the profession in the commonwealth in any manner whatsoever.”

Wills may apply for the reinstatement of the license after at least five years from when it was revoked, provided he applies to the board in writing and acknowledges he may be required to take and pass the applicable examination, according to court documents.

In the meantime, he is not allowed to work an an unlicensed assistant to anyone authorized by the board to practice or to hold a controlling interest in any organization requiring an authorization from the board to practice, meaning he cannot be “an owner, officer, manager, director, partner, member, or associate” or “own any quantity of outstanding corporate stock sufficient to control or direct actions of the firm,” court documents indicate.
