JACKSON, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from the Mississippi Attorney General's Office.
Feneisha Chandre Hill, 32, of State Line, turned herself in to the Greene County Sheriff's Department and faces identity theft charges, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
Hill turned herself in Thursday after being informed of an affidavit charging her with one count felonious identity theft and one count felonious use of another person's debit card number for the purpose of fraudulently obtaining anything of value.
The affidavit charges Hill with using the victim's Community Bank account information to withdraw $270. The victim was a patient at the nursing home at which Hill was employed as the Director of Social Services.
Greene County Justice Court Judge Jeff Byrd set Hill's bond at $5,000. If convicted, Hill faces up to 15 years behind bars with a $10,000 fine for identity theft and five years with a $5,000 fine for fraudulent use of another person's debit card number. She faces a total of 20 years behind bars and $15,000 in fines if convicted of both charges. As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by Chief Investigator Randolph Brown and will be prosecuted by Sue Perry of the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
