Ex-Veterans Commission worker indicted

Friday, June 4, 2010

ST. LOUIS -- A former Missouri Veterans Commission accountant who has already pleaded guilty to state charges now faces federal indictment accusing her of embezzling $90,000 in commission funds.

U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan on Thursday announced the indictment of 32-year-old Stacy Griffin-Lowery of Holts Summit on one count each of mail fraud, misapplication of government funds and aggravated identity theft.

The indictment alleges that from 2005 to 2008, Griffin-Lowery embezzled money intended to benefit veterans residing in nursing homes.

In addition to the criminal cases, Missouri's attorney general filed suit against Griffin-Lowery in April.

Griffin-Lowery did not have a listed phone number. A message was left with her attorney.
