Lesa George is a serial fraudster who was charged with more than 110 counts of fraud, and served 32 months in prison.
I first met George when contracted by a dentist who employed her.
Ultimately, I wound up confronting George in person and fired her for theft. That led to being summoned as a prosecution witness in George’s criminal and civil trials.
Lesa’ was not a model prisoner.
Before she was released from prison, the Parole Board told George:
“Your institutional behavior has been problematic, including interpersonal issues with and vindictive behaviors toward other offenders; taking medications not prescribed to you, refusing to cooperate with the Security Intelligence Officer, and making inappropriate comments to staff.”
That statement was made back in March 2013, when George was reaching her release date and could not be held in prison any longer.
