Jury acquits in Fairfield embezzlement case

From page A3 | February 08, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield woman who faced a felony embezzlement charge was found not guilty Friday after a three-day jury trial.

Ashley M. White used to be the sales manager at a Fairfield retail medical supply store. Her boss discovered in 2010 that $3,000 was missing from where the business stored its cash and checks.

The prosecutor told jurors that the owner confronted White and accused her of the theft and that they made an agreement to keep the police out of the picture if she repaid him. Instead, she disappeared.

White was arrested by Fairfield police in 2012 after they tracked her down using Facebook.

After the testimony of her boss and a former coworker about the three-year-old theft, White took the witness stand and denied being a thief. It took the jury about two hours to agree with her.

    The boss is always the rich white guy... so he must be lying. The crook was judged by a jury of her peers... in Fairfield the chances of her peers being crooks is greatly increased... obviously. Heck, in California, I'm surprised the boss didn't have to pay pain and suffering to the crook... or at least moving expenses when she fled.

    Hahahaaaaaa lol lol. I love it. Next time you suspect a crime. Do not take the law into your own hands. Especially if they are not clean to begin with. I love this story.

    Solano County Juries are an absolute disgrace to the Criminal Justice system! So let me get this right, the woman gets caught by her employer stealing money, agrees to reimburse the employer, then gets ghost. Police report, DA files case, and at trial wins states she is not a thief! Well certainly! We must aquit! Really? Can it be that simple? Enablers!!! I have other words, but that is just not professional. Very ashamed!

    @Bill of Rights-First off, you did NOT get it right. Her boss did NOT catch her in the act. He found the money missing and confronted her. Second, Solano County juries aren't the problem. Solano County Courts, and the Criminal NON JUSTICE System are the problem. You need to go sit in Judge Donna Set em Free Stashyn's court. See how many repeat drug selling offenders she has, that she sends to treatment, then keeps extending their probation over and over and over, NEVER sending them to prison. I thought probation was a warning, not a life long thing. Crime does pay in Solano County, just ask the girlfriend of Matt Garcia' murderer. She received TENS OF THOUSANDS IN WITNESS PROTECTION MONEY to testify in court, even though, her hands were FILTHY. She drove the murderer to the murder-yet instead of being charged as an accomplice, she's PAID to testify against her baby daddy.
