Former State Employee Charged With Stealing on the
Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler today announced that
Danielle Selena Blue, 31, of Barrett Road in Baltimore, Maryland,
was charged (on January 17,
2007) with the crime of felony theft of approximately $7,414.00 from the State
of Maryland, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The charges further allege
that the theft occurred from October 15, 2005 until May 16, 2006, while Danielle
Blue was employed by the State to work at the Board of Audiologists, Hearing
Aid Examiners and Speech-Language Pathologists. No trial date has been set by
the Baltimore City Circuit Court.
The pending case will be prosecuted by the Criminal Investigations
Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. While
a criminal 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 is punishable by a maximum
sentence of fifteen (15) years or a fine of $25,000.00, or both.
