Hickory Flat woman faces pair of charges
A North Mississippi resident is facing charges that she exploited a resident of the care facility where she worked, according to Attorney General Jim Hood.
Jessica Lowery, 38, of Hickory Flat, turned herself in to authorities in Union County October 16 on an indictment handed down by the Union County Grand Jury, which alleges one count of uttering a forgery and one count of exploitation of a vulnerable person.
The indictment alleges that Lowery, while employed as a resident assistant at the Magnolia Place Assisted Living Facility in New Albany, obtained a resident’s signature on eight personal checks under the guise of using the checks to buy personal items for the resident, but instead used the checks for her own benefit. Lowery is also accused of forging one check and pocketing the cash.
Lowery’s bond was set at $5,000. She is scheduled to make her initial court appearance on October 29 in Union County.
As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The New Albany Police Department assisted with this case, which is being investigated by Joe Sanderson and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Pat McNamara of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
