DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A former DeKalb County Commissioner pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges of mail fraud conspiracy and wire fraud on Wednesday.
Elaine Boyer, who had to pay the county back for thousands of dollars in unauthorized charges on her county-issued credit card, resigned in August.
As 11Alive reported in March, a review of Elaine Boyer's spending found charges for airline tickets, car rentals and other items unrelated to any official county business.
In newly-released court documents, prosecutors allege that Boyer took part in a scheme to defraud DeKalb County and obtain money under false pretenses.(READ THE DOCUMENTS HERE)
