Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Forgery in the First Degree gets woman 4 years in prison!


I was sorting through some articles today and found one of a woman who had stolen less than $20,000 and was given 4 years in prison. I’m not sure if the state she’s from has a minimum or truth in sentencing time (which means you do exactly the time given).  I thought that was a great deal of time for such small amount compared to the time the individuals who have stolen millions were given.

At any rate, the story must be told and our CrimeDiva today is, Chiquita Rivers who pleaded guilty in a Tift County Superior Court to seven counts of Forgery in the First Degree. The judge sentenced Ms.Rivers to four years in prison. This was the shocker to me; 16 years probation (as broke as the states are a probation officer has to maintain this case for 16 years or until he/she releases her) and she has to pay restitution of $19,385.00. Ms. Rivers was taken into custody immediately.

The crime detail to this case: Ms. Rivers was cashing the checks from her dead grandmother’s bank account (a retired school teacher who had died in 1994 ); and executing fraudulent documents to continue the theft. (that must have taken a lot of work.)

Have you read the short story The Check, based on a true situation of an illiterate elderly woman whose husband suddenly dies and she ends up in prison because her thought she could keep his social security checks. It is a very informative and interesting read that you can read for free if you are an Amazon Kindle Prime Member or for only .99 for others.

Will you help me help prevent and stop white-collar crime by purchasing a T-Shirt ($12), wear it and tell others about this site. Thanks you!
