Dontreal Jenkins and Trevayne Jones Convicted of Embezzlement of Government Property and Aggravated Identity Theft
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 14, 2013
Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that on January 11, 2013, a federal jury in Albany, Georgia, convicted defendants Dontreal M. Jenkins, and Trevayne D. Jones, both of Albany, Georgia, on Counts 1 through 5 of a superseding indictment on the following charges:  Conspiracy to Embezzle Public Monies, United States Treasury checks in the amount of $700,000, Counts 2 and 4, Embezzlement of Government Property, and Counts 3 & 5,  and Aggravated Identity Theft.
From about January 28, 2011, and continuing through on or about May 12, 2011, Jenkins and Jones, acting with others in a conspiracy to embezzle public monies, stole and cashed United States Treasury checks using, without lawful authority, the names and signatures of the intended payees.  The jury further found Jones guilty on an additional count of misleading statements to law enforcement in connection with the embezzlement offense.  Jenkins was convicted on an additional count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in connection with a scheme in which he participated to obtain student loan monies by fraud from the United States Department of Education.
The defendants face a maximum penalty of ten years per count as to each act of embezzlement, a $250,000 fine, and supervised release.  Sentencing will be scheduled before Judge W. Louis Sands, United States District Judge for the Middle District of Georgia at a later date.
This theft of United States Treasury checks case was investigated by the United States Secret Service and the United States Department of Education Office of Inspector General investigated the student loan fraud.   Assistant United States Attorney Jim Crane handled the prosecution.
