Marion County school employee faces fraud charges

By

Saddlewood Elementary School bookkeeper Debra Lemily faces charges of organized fraud. She was arrested Thursday when an auditor noticed missing funds from the school’s account. Marion County Public School Spokesman Kevin Christian says Lemily’s arrest was surprising.

“This particular employee has been with us since 1980. She has glowing remarks in her evaluation, so no, it’s certainly not nothing we would ever suspect of somebody with that kind of longevity with the district,” said Christian.

Lemily was placed on leave in January and resigned two days ater.
