A former employee of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department has been indicted by the Mercer County Grand Jury on charges of embezzlement.
Charlotte Harvey, 54, no address given, was indicted on two charges of embezzlement, said Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash. Each charge carries a potential penalty of one to 10 years in prison.
Approximately $16,000 was found missing from from the sheriff’s department between 2006 to 2011, Ash said.
Ash said Harvey is no longer with the sheriff’s department.
