AG STRANGE ANNOUNCES INDICTMENT OF FORMER
ALABAMA REVENUE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE FOR THEFT
AND FORGERY OF STATE CHECK
(MONTGOMERY)–Attorney General Luther Strange announces the
indictment of a former Alabama Department of Revenue employee for the theft and
forgery of a State check.
Kimberly A. Perry, 32, of Hope Hull, surrendered yesterday to the
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and was released on bond.
Following an investigation by the Alabama Department of Revenue and the
Attorney General’s Office, Attorney General Strange’s Special Prosecutions Division
presented evidence to a Montgomery County grand jury on July 22, resulting in the
indictment* against Perry.
Specifically, the indictment charges Perry with one count of first-degree theft
and one count of second-degree possession of a forged instrument for stealing
multiple checks from the Alabama Department of Revenue and using forgery to
cash one of the checks. The indictment shows a photo of the forged instrument,
which is a State of Alabama check in the amount of $1,019.19.
If convicted, Perry faces a potential penalty of two to 20 years for first-degree
theft of property and one year and one day to ten years for the second-degree
possession of a forged instrument.
*An indictment is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
