FLORENCE, Ariz. — A former employee in the Pinal County Attorney’s Office
has been indicted on theft, fraud and forgery charges.
Prosecutors say 44-year-old Somer Fite is facing eight counts including six
counts of forgery.
The Prescott woman is accused of stealing cash from the office’s diversion
program by making or altering six bank money orders totaling $1,370 last year
between May and August.
Fite started at the county Attorney’s Office in January 2007 and worked in the
diversion program until August 2012.
She was arraigned Friday in Pinal County Superior Court. It’s unclear if she
has an attorney yet.
