Barbara Jo Fulton and the US Department of Justice

In 2010 Judge Steve Warning of Cowlitz County began to suspect something was not adding up in the Check book maintained by the non entity “SCJA” at Key Bank, he suspected maybe $30,000 or so was missing. A Thurston County CPA firm was retained to examine this account and the initial amount of cash missing began to gown into the low/mid six figures, at some point some unknown person reported this crime to the Thurston County Sheriff 3-09-12 PRR Thurston County Sheriff, who referred the case to the WSP, the records for this transfer have been lost both by the WSP and TCSO 3-07-12 PRR WSP 2-25-12 PDR WSP SCJA Ericsson Investigation. The WSP investigated and contacted the FBI who took the case over.

Fulton attempted to conceal her activity by producing a false check register and attempted to explain away the missing cash. The FBI arrested her and the US DOJ filed bank fraud charges against her 5-19-11 Charging Document.

The complete Federal Case documents-

5-26-11 Government Sentencing Memorandum 5-26-11 Memo Exhibit A 5-26-11 Plea Agreement 9-12-11 Barbara Jo Ericsson US District Court Docket

Jenny Durkan DOJ issued a small press release shortly thereafter 9-16-11 US DOJ Durkan Barbara Ericsson.

Bank fraud happened here, no question but how can a non entity be a victim? How can the acquisition of this money be explained?

It is like the CPA who steals his drug dealer clients money and gets caught and convicted but the drug dealer goes right along selling his poison to school children.
