A former administrative assistant in the Garland County Judge's office who used a county credit card to buy, among other things, a tuxedo for her Pug, plead guilty yesterday to six felony counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Kristi Lyn Goss, 44, who had been with Garland County since 2004, was arrested last October. The fraudulent charges were discovered in May 2016. Goss was scheduled to stand trial Tuesday, but accepted an as-of-yet undisclosed plea agreement. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 22.

In addition to dog evening wear, the criminal information filed in Garland Circuit Court alleged she also used the county credit card to pay for personal utility bills, Razorback football tickets, kids' school lunches, jewelry, car payments, property taxes, a sequin throw pillow and pet insurance. The charges amounted to $162,598.

The Democrat-Gazette has more details on Monday's plea.

Goss is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 22.

  • 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.
