Ex-worker admits taking money from the state

September 04, 2005

A former Department of Juvenile Services employee has pleaded guilty to felony theft in connection with misusing her state purchasing card, the attorney general's office announced last week.

Monique Barnette Green of the 3200 block of Arbor Hill Court in Abingdon admitted using her state card in 2001 to buy items for personal use worth more than $11,500 - including groceries, car repairs, clothes and jewelry, according to prosecutors. Green was the assistant chief of telecommunications for the department at the time.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Lynn K. Stewart sentenced Green to a three-year, suspended sentence and ordered her to repay the money to the agency as part of her probation, the attorney general's office said.
