Former Obion County probation officer indicted

UNION CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a former Obion County drug court probation officer has been charged with stealing more than $63,000 from probationers she had been monitoring.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Monday that 44-year-old Martha Sue Moore has been indicted on two counts of theft over $60,000 and one count of money laundering.

Investigators say Moore reported incorrect amounts of money she collected from probationers while working for Westate Corrections Network. The TBI says Westate discovered a discrepancy in money collected while preparing for an audit.

According to the TBI, the state comptroller's office conducted an audit that showed Moore stole more than $63,000 from 2006 until early 2013.

Moore was booked into the Obion County Jail on $150,000 bond. Her initial court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
