Grand Jury Indicts Ex-County Deputy Auditor
September 12, 2014 — The Associated Press — A federal grand jury has indicted a former northern Indiana official on charges alleging she embezzled more than $150,000.
The Justice Department announced Thursday that 66-year-old Mary Ray of LaPorte faces two counts each of theft of government monies and of making false statements on a tax return.
The indictment alleges the former LaPorte County deputy auditor embezzled the money between September 2011 and December 2012. It also alleges she under-reported her income on her federal tax returns for those two years by failing to report the embezzled funds.
A telephone message seeking comment was left for Ray’s attorney by the AP.
