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
Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division.
