Con-woman sentenced

October 31, 2006

Albany -- A former Albany Herald employee plead no contest to charges she conned her co-workers out of money for her six year old son's funeral. The boy is not dead.

Demetrious Green of Parrott was sentenced to 12 months probation and fined $409. She'll also have to pay more than $3,000 in restitution.

Just before last Christmas, Green told Herald supervisor that her son died, and  co-workers raised $630 for her.

In July, she told the paper her mother died, and she needed time off. Both her son and mother are still alive. Green resigned from the paper August 4th.
