A trio of former Department of Revenue employees pleaded guilty this week to financial transaction card fraud in DeKalb County Superior Court, state officials said.
Judge Melvin Westmoreland sentenced Marcus Britt, Micah Decuir and William Gladney to 30 days imprisonment and two years on probation. In addition, the three were ordered to pay restitution to the Department of Revenue.
Britt, who pleaded guilty to nine counts, was ordered to pay $877.53; Decuir, who pleaded guilty to four counts, was ordered to pay $545.58; and Gladney, who pleaded guilty to two counts, was ordered to pay $150.82, according to authorities.
According to state investigators, the three, while employed by the Department of Revenue, used a co-worker’s state-issued gasoline card personal identification number without authorization to fraudulently obtain gasoline for their personal vehicles.
A co-defendant — John Richardson — pleaded guilty on June 22. Charges remain pending against the final co-defendant, Billy Evans, who failed to appear for court in June; a bench warrant is outstanding.
Assistant Attorney General Daniel A. Hiatt prosecuted Britt, Decuir and Gladney. The case was investigated by Investigator Mike Bailey of the Department of Revenue.
