A former Georgia Public Broadcasting finance department employee was indicted Monday on 46 counts of felony theft. Belinda Davis, also known as Belinda Botley Usher, allegedly stole more than $21,000 in a complicated fraud scheme. She was terminated from GPB in February 2008 when the theft was discovered. “We can’t comment on this indictment but I can tell you that we hope for a quick resolution and justice,” station spokeswoman Nancy Zintak told Current. “At GPB our highest priority is to be good stewards of our member support and their trust, and we will continue to do so.”

    Hello again: I checked with the station. A spokesperson provided a document from the Georgia Department of Corrections dated May 17, 2010, in which the Superior Court of Fulton County ordered Belinda Davis to pay $21,116.99 in monthly installments as restitution. In a negotiated plea bargain, Davis pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years probation.
