April 29, 2019 – This weekend I was notified by the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office that my adult son was arrested for charges of identity theft and fraud. The investigation began last week when I reported a stolen personal check to the NCSO. As his mom, I’m disheartened that their investigation led back to my own son and that others may also have been victimized by his actions.

My son has struggled with substance abuse for some time. His struggle is one of the reasons why I am passionate about helping others with mental health and substance use issues and why I am proud to serve this county.

This is a very difficult time for our family. These are serious allegations. I thank the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office for their investigation in bringing these issues to light and for their professionalism in this matter.
