Ex-secretary for Douglas prosecutor indicted
ATLANTA (AP) — A grand jury has accused a former secretary for a Douglas County prosecutor of improperly claiming public money for work she did not perform.
Tammie Agan was indicted Friday on 34 felony charges of making a false statement or writing and 24 misdemeanor counts of theft by taking. She did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Agan has been accused of putting in fraudulent claims for work she did not do and claiming payments for her daughter, who was an office intern. Her daughter has not been charged with any crimes. The mother is accused of claiming $400 monthly payment on her daughter’s behalf.
Agan was supposed to receive additional payments if she transcribed law enforcement interviews and recorded conversations outside of her normal working hours.
