Woman gets 20 years pro­ba­tion for fraud

The Barrie Examiner - - NATIONAL NEWS -

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — A former Arkansas County em­ployee who fraud­u­lently spent more than $366,000 us­ing a county credit card to buy per­sonal items, in­clud­ing a tuxedo for her dog, has been sen­tenced to 20 years of pro­ba­tion.

Court doc­u­ments show 44-year-old Kristi Goss was sen­tenced Wed­nes­day after plead­ing guilty in Septem­ber to us­ing the card to pur­chase the dog tuxedo, a di­a­mond bracelet, tick­ets to Arkansas Ra­zor­backs sport­ing events, and to pay util­ity bills and auto pay­ments. Goss was an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant for the Gar­land County judge in Hot Springs, about 70 km south­west of Lit­tle Rock.

Goss said she re­grets her ac­tions and that the stress of sup­port­ing her en­tire fam­ily be­came “too much for her.”
