Ex-secretary for Douglas prosecutor indicted

ATLANTA (AP) -- A former secretary for a Douglas County prosecutor has been accused of financial corruption.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports a grand jury Friday indicted Tammie Agan on 34 felony charges of making a false statement or writing and 24 misdemeanor counts of theft by taking.

She's accused of billing for work she did not do and putting in fraudulent claims for payments to her daughter, who was an intern. The indictment alleges that the mother collected the $400 monthly payments on the daughter's behalf.

Agan did not return a message seeking comment.

Douglas County DA David McDade retired as part of an agreement reached with the state attorney general's office as the state wrapped up its investigation. He agreed to repay the county $4,000 in disputed spending.
