NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Reports indicate the Commonwealth's Attorney will not bring charges against the Community Services Board or a former employee.
Jill McGlone collected $320,000 in pay over 12 years even though she never showed up to work.
Neither she nor anyone else will face prosecution in state court for fraud.
It's possible the case could end up in federal court where you are not allowed "willful blindness" to crimes around you.
"Under the federal system, this jury instruction says you just can't turn your eye or blind's eye and say hey, you know it's just how it is, it's not that way in federal court so I think they do have more ammunition if the feds pick up the case," said Attorney Andy Protogyrou.
In state court, there is no jury instruction saying it's your responsibility to report crime which did not happen in this case.
