A woman who was convicted of taking more than $7,000 in Starke County Tourism Commission funds for her own use will be sentenced in Starke Circuit Court this morning at 10 a.m.
Starke Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall found Jennie Carter guilty on a charge of theft after a bench trial. The prosecution called two witnesses: Chris Campione with the Indiana State Police, who was the lead investigator in the case, and Debbie Mix with the Starke County Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism Commission. They testified of their knowledge of the event surrounding the incident. Defendant Jennie Carter testified on her own behalf.
The bench trial occurred over the course of two days in February.
