Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that former Maryland
Transportation Authority toll collector, Georgetta Peters, 42, of Peach
Orchard Lane, Baltimore, was re-sentenced today as a result of her guilty
plea entered to multiple counts of violation of probation. In February
of 2001, Peters entered a plea of guilty to stealing $9,631 of toll funds,
while she was working at the Fort McHenry Toll facility.
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Carol E. Smith, sentenced Peters to three years incarceration for the violations of probation and terminated her probation. The Maryland Transportation Authority police referred this matter for investigation and prosecution by the Office of the Attorney General.
