FORMER YUBA CPS WORKER IS CONVICTED

OF 16 FELONY COUNTS IN PLACER TRIAL

 

            A former child protective services worker for Yuba County is scheduled for sentencing in Placer County later this month after a jury found her guilty of 16 felony offenses that included check fraud, forgery, attempted extortion and accepting a bribe.

Yolanda Perez Fryson, 43, deposited checks of no value in order to take money from her personal bank accounts in Placer and Yuba counties, falsified documents to cover up the crimes and, while on administrative leave from her CPS job, used a missing badge from her office to misrepresent herself in an extortion attempt, according to prosecutor Stephanie Macumber of the District Attorney’s Office.

A jury deliberated two days before returning Nov. 1 with guilty verdicts on all 16 counts against Fryson.

Placer County Superior Court Judge Joseph O’Flaherty, who presided over the three-week trial, set Nov. 29 for sentencing.
