Southeast Missouri Woman Pleads Guilty to Stealing County Funds

DECEMBER 16, 2005 - Posted at 1:03 p.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Cape Girardeau woman pleads guilty to her role in the theft of money from the Cape Girardeau County prosecuting attorney's bad check fund.

Denise Johnson pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of stealing in exchange for four other counts being dropped.  She is scheduled to be sentenced on April 25.

Restitution clerk Monica Krauss of Cape Girardeau was charged in July with draining more than $6,000 from a fund set up to pay restitution to crime victims.

Krauss is charged with writing checks to Johnson, Monique Evans and Ursie Black, who investigators believe was an unwitting participant in the scheme.  Krauss allegedly split the money with Johnson and Evans.

Evans pleaded guilty last month.  She will be sentenced in February.
