Former Pittsburg Co. Drug Court Worker Indicted (Jun 02, 2011)

McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — The former drug court coordinator for Pittsburg County has been indicted for embezzlement and destroying public records by a multicounty grand jury.

An eight-count indictment against 53-year-old Angela Marie Marcum was unsealed Thursday in McAlester. It accuses Marcum of one count each of embezzlement of public money and embezzlement of public property and six counts of stealing or destroying public books and records.

The indictment accuses Marcum of embezzling more than $25,000 in payments by drug court participants between July 2009 and May 2010 and destroying receipt books. It also accuses her of embezzlement of the program's laptop computer.

Her attorney, Michael Parks of McAlester, says Marcum is not guilty. Parks says Marcum had no motive to steal from the program and that others had access to drug court funds.
