Lafayette County treasurer pleads to theft

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2014 at 3:23 PM

Keesha Rose, 37, pleaded guilty in Texarkana today to federal charges that she stole almost a quarter of a million dollars from Lafayette County.

She is county treasurer and tax collector in Lafayette County (not the former treasurer as I originally wrote). She embezzled more than $240,000 in public money by diverting public money to herself between 2011 and 2013. She was charged in federal court under a charge related to theft from programs receiving federal money.

She was indicted last March. Sentencing will be later. Her term of office runs through December 31.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
