Authorities in Forsyth Co. fraud look for more victims
By B.J. Williams Administrator
CUMMING - A Forsyth County woman and two county sheriff's deputies have been implicated in a scheme to defraud at least one elderly person and investigators said there could be other victims.
Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Robin Regan said Saturday 42-year-old Kimberly McAfee Pruitt faces charges of forgery 1st degree, felony theft by taking, exploitation and intimidation of disabled or elderly adults and
unauthorized practice of law.
"Ms. Pruitt was working for an attorney's office and the attorney was representing people accused of sex offender crimes," said Regan.
He said the Sheriff's Office received a complaint, alleging Pruitt was representing herself as an attorney and taking money for legal services.
Regan said Pruitt was arrested at her home Friday; she posted bond overnight.
In addition, Pruitt's husband Chadd Musgrave was arrested during the execution of the search warrant on a charge of possession of a sawed off shotgun. Regan said Musgrave has bonded out of jail, as well.
Regan did not indicate how the two sheriff's deputies might be involved in the scheme, but he said investigators uncovered enough evidence to believe the two participated in the fraudulent activity. The deputies, whose names have not been released, have been placed on administrative leave.
Regan said more information on the case could be released the middle of next week.
