A Columbus woman faces up to three years in prison for alleged credit card fraud, Attorney General Jim Hood said Saturday.
Candy Marie Lucas, 25, of Columbus, was arrested Saturday, following indictment by a Lowndes County Grand Jury. The indictment alleges Lucas exploited a relative, while the relative was hospitalized, between June and November of 2011. Lucas is accused of making about $600 of unauthorized purchases on the victim’s ATM bank card.
If convicted, she faces a $1,000 fine and up to three years in prison.
The case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Larry Baker of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division.
