Baltimore Woman Convicted of Theft from Central Collection Unit

Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler today announced that Kathy J. Robinson, 42, of E. Belvedere Avenue in Baltimore City, pled guilty in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City to theft, stealing $6,300 from the Central Collection Unit of the State Department of Budget and Management. The Central Collection Unit is responsible for collecting debts owed to all state agencies except for child support and tax matters. The Honorable Martin P. Welch sentenced Robinson to a period of three years incarceration, all suspended, with an order to pay full restitution and perform 80 hours of community service.

The investigation revealed Robinson was one of two clerks at the Central Collection Unit responsible for counting cash deposits, filling out the deposit slips and placing the deposits in a safe to await pickup for delivery to the bank. When confronted by investigators, Robinson confessed that on three separate occasions, she removed money from the deposits prior to delivery to the bank.

Robinson’s conviction follows an investigation by the Criminal Division of the Office of the Attorney General. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Harris and former Assistant Attorney General Paul Budlow for their work on the case.
