Former Jackson County Treasurer Beth Sallee faces a federal indictment after officials say she stole more than $160,000 from taxpayers. As treasurer, she was paid to handle Jackson County’s money but is accused of stealing it. According to the indictment, Sallee wrote checks to herself, forging the signatures of other county employees, then depositing checks or cashing them. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says it all adds up to more than $160,000. Sallee was arrested in 2014, but those charges were eventually dropped and she won a settlement from that case. In July 2016, she was suspended as treasurer when the fiscal court noticed possible fraud, findings backed up by a state audit. Sallee is now indicted on ten federal charges, including four counts of wire fraud, four counts of theft from a program recieving federal funds and two counts of aggravated identity theft.
