A woman who served as treasurer of Lee County Go Texan for several years will serve probation after being indicted for theft from the organization.
54-year-old Cheryl Richardson of Lexington was sentenced this month to two years probation after being indicted in early May for Theft of Property Between $2,500 and $30,000 from a Non-profit organization, a third degree felony.
Richardson was also ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.
According to the indictment, Richardson unlawfully appropriated more than $2,500 but less than $30,000 from the organization “without the effective consent of the owner, and with intent to deprive the owner of the property”. The indictment states the illegal activity began in December of 2016 and continued until March of 2019.
Richardson in May turned herself in to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, and was released on $10,000 bond.
(The Lee County Sheriff's Office was unable to provide a mugshot of Richardson due to a camera malfunction at the time she was booked. She was released prior to the camera being fixed.)
