Trio indicted for allegedly stealing money from state Dept. of Human Services

Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 1:13pm

A Davidson County grand jury has indicted three women for stealing more than $60,000 from the state Department of Human Services.

Clarissa Jones, 34, Sharron Katherine Luckey, 40, and Shonnekia Peacock, 36, were each charged with one count of theft of $60,000 or more, one count of money laundering and two counts of identity theft.

According to the indictment filed Wednesday, the women rerouted child support payments and deposited them into accounts at Avenue Bank “where the funds were thereafter withdrawn with the intent to conceal or disguise the nature, location, source, ownership, or control of the criminally derived proceeds.”

The alleged theft and money laundering coincided with the identity theft of two individuals from June 1, 2008, to Sept. 30, 2009.

A spokeswoman with the Davidson County District Attorney General’s Office said information about the scope of the theft wouldn’t be available at this stage of the investigation. They are facing the highest level of felony theft charges.

Luckey and Peacock both made $50,000 bond on Thursday and were released from Davidson County Jail. An arraignment date hasn’t been set in the case yet.

Whoa Whoa Whoa-these should be Federal Charges!! OK- so they are. They will all get prison time no squirming out of this. MPD will update this at 1:00am. I would check for priors but of course the Clerks site is down again. More Deno shady politics-use the media to run off a competent man from the job-and replace him with a nodding lackey who has no experience at all-doing anything much less a complex criminal clerks office.

Smack their wrist real hard, make them plead guilty and promise
to pay this back. Of course,, said plea would include probation
and promise to repay at $1.00 per week for next 60-70,000 weeks!
That's the standard procedure when any state or local employees
steal within their jobs. Could also be the reason so many do it !

Looks like they really took more money than was listed. They will get 1 year probation and continue to work for human services.
