ASU employee pleads in mail fraud scheme

Posted By on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 2:42 PM

The U.S. attorney's office has announced a guilty plea to mail fraud and money laundering charges by Virginia DeMaine, 57, of Jonesboro. She was a coordinator of a training program for early childhood educators. According to a news release, she defrauded the school of $733,000 over seven years by diverting payments to the program to herself. Many of the checks she cashed paid for personal expenses on a credit card.  She's on bond pending sentencing.
