DeKalb Commissioner-Charges

DeKalb Commissioner-Charges

DECATUR, Georgia (AP) - A former DeKalb County commissioner facing federal conspiracy and mail fraud charges has waived indictment and says she'll plead guilty to the charges.

Elaine Boyer appeared in court Tuesday, a day after resigning from the position she held for more than 20 years.

Prosecutors said in newly released court documents that Boyer participated in a scheme to defraud DeKalb County, one of Georgia's largest counties that includes several of Atlanta's eastern suburbs.

Boyer told sources Monday that she abused her power and betrayed constituents. Other sources have also reported on about $16,000 in personal purchases that Boyer made with a county-issued card. Reports also show that Boyer was repaying the money when the federal probe began.

Boyer has been released on a $25,000 signature bond.
