After a grand cover-up of more than 2,200 credit card transactions and unauthorized purchases totaling more than $129,000, Deborah Mansell, former financial secretary for Highland Park Baptist Church, Muscle Shoals, was indicted in mid-July by the Colbert County grand jury.
Mansell, 63, will face charges that include first-degree theft of property and 20 counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. Mansell reportedly took money from different line items in the church budget in order to hide the transactions she was making July 2011 through April 2014.
