NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - In a letter to Acting Norfolk Police Chief Sharon Chamberlin, Commonwealth's Attorney Gregory Underwood indicated that no criminal charges would be brought against Jill McGlone .
McGlone is the former Norfolk Community Service Board (CSB) employee who received a paycheck for 12 years, even though she never showed up for work.
McGlone had been receiving $25,000 to $40,000 a year with full benefits. She was even given regular pay raises. In all McGlone received $319,000.
CSB is a taxpayer funded agency that provides mental health and substance abuse help for low-income residents of Norfolk.
Underwood wrote, "While the detailed and in-depth criminal investigation by the Norfolk Police Department does raise questions about prior management operations of the NCSB, the evidence obtained does not support pursuing a criminal prosecution against Jill McGlone or any NCSB employee."
Norfolk City Attorney Bernerd Pishko is pursuing civil litigation against McGlone and four other CSB workers for the money to be paid back.
