Baltimore Woman Charged with Misappropriation of Funds


Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Marilyn St. Louis Walkes, 52, of the 3000 block of Thorndale Avenue in Baltimore was charged in the District Court for Baltimore County with one count of Misappropriation by a Fiduciary.

From May, 2005 through June, 2006, it is alleged that St. Louis Walkes fraudulently appropriated money from a developmentally disabled woman who was in her care. The case is being prosecuted by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.

While a criminal charge is only an accusation and all persons are presumed innocent unless proven guilty, a charge of Misappropriation by a Fiduciary is a misdemeanor, punishable by not less than one year imprisonment and not exceeding 5 years in jail. Trial is scheduled for June 26, 2007 in the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore County in Towson.
