How easy it is to deceive those that want something for little  of nothing – satisfying their own greed: are we not all predators and victims?”  DeVine

Shela Amos and an accomplice, Beverly Cannedy, both were charged with multiple counts of theft, burglary and corrupt business influence, collecting more than $24,000.

Amos was also convicted of forgery. A juror convicted her on all counts — a total of 16
Cannedy pleaded guilty to the charges against her.

According to documents detailing the charges, Amos and Cannedy met with victims to talk about homes they said they owned. The two showed victims what they called legitimate documents proving their ownership, such as land contracts, tenant agreements and agreements to purchase real estate, the court documents further indicated that Amos and employees of the youth foundation stated they were “sovereign citizens,” meaning that they were not subject to any federal, state or municipal law.

“Shela Amos was a scam artist who preyed upon naïve members of our community, cloaking her activities under the phony authority of being an alleged sovereign citizen,” Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a news release today. “There is no doubt that she and her colleagues would still be victimizing vulnerable individuals but for this prosecution.”
