Former Lafayette County treasurer gets 2-year sentence for embezzlement of public money

Posted By on Fri, Mar 20, 2015 at 3:07 PM

Keesha Rose, 37, of Lewisville, the former treasurer and tax collector for Lafayette County was sentenced today to two years in federal prison for theft. She was ordered to pay restitution of $282,036, said U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge after sentencing in Texarkana.

Rose was elected in 2010. In May 2013, Legislative Audit turned up significant discrepancies in bank deposits, ultimately talled at more than $282,000. She pleaded guilty last October.
