Former Cape TV Anchor Charged with Theft

FEBRUARY 28, 2007 - Posted at 4:04 p.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A former TV news anchor faces seven years in prison on charges of stealing more than $20,000 while she was the guardian of an estate.

Tiffany Sisson, 34, worked for the CBS affiliate in Cape Girardeau, KFVS 12.  She turned herself in at the Scott County Jail on Monday and was released later that day on bond.

She maintains her innocence.  She resigned from the television station in December, and her last day was yesterday.

Sisson is accused of appropriating more than $20,000 from an estate she manages on behalf of someone who can't.

A complaint filed by Scott County Prosecuting Attorney Paul Boyd said Sisson spent the money on trips out of state and other expenses.
