FORMER COMPANY BOOKKEEPER CHARGED
WITH FELONY THEFT

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Elizabeth Strein Rothmeyer, 32 , presently residing in Canton, Ohio, was indicted on November 25, 2002, in Baltimore City Circuit Court with felony theft and fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary. The indictment alleges that during a 14-month period beginning on June 23, 2000, Elizabeth Rothmeyer stole money in excess of $500 from J.G. Martin Company, Inc., a Baltimore area business. No trial date has been set.

The pending cases will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. While an indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, felony theft is punishable by a maximum sentence of 15 years or a fine of $1,000, or both. Fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary has a maximum penalty of not less than one year nor more than five years.
