FORMER STATE EMPLOYEE CHARGED WITH STEALING MONEY


Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today the indictment of Monique Barnette Green, of the 3000 block of Arbor Hill Court, Abingdon, Maryland by the Baltimore City Grand Jury. Green, 38 yrs. old, was indicted on one count of felony theft and one count of fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary in connection with her responsibilities as the Assistant Chief of Telecommunications for the Maryland Department of Juvenile Justice. It is alleged that between March 22, 2001 and May 16, 2001, Green stole monies from her employer by misusing a State issued credit card, totaling approximately $11,511.98, and converted the monies to her own personal and business uses.

While an indictment or charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, felony theft, if proved, carries a maximum penalty of 15 years and up to a $1,000.00 fine. Fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary, if proved, carries a maximum penalty of five years. The case was investigated by the Maryland State Police and will be prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division.
