Press Release

Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office

 

 

July 14, 2017 – Anita Adams was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison today for a felony theft she plead guilty to this past May.  The 51-year-old Houston woman was charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer along with the company’s bookkeeper.

 

According to Scott Carpenter, the Economic Crimes Division Chief Prosecutor, Adams plead guilty to Theft on May 15, 2017.  The Court ordered a pre-sentence investigation report by the adult probation department to be considered during sentencing.  The evidence developed during the investigation demonstrated that Adams’ friend, Andrea Davidson, had been employed at an engineering company as an office manager.  One of her responsibilities included managing the accounts payables, including all vendor payments.  According to the financial records offered into evidence, Davidson stole over $8 million from her employer by issuing company checks to herself and friends.  Davidson disguised the checks by removing them from the company’s computers and providing its accounting with altered bank statements.  Adams testified at her sentencing hearing that beginning in 2007, Davidson began issuing company checks directly to Adams and she would deposit the checks into her bank account.  In return, Adams gave one-half of each deposit to Davidson.  Adams admitted to passing over $258,000 in stolen money through her account.  The scheme was discovered when a credit card company called the engineering firm asking if $300,000 in payments to Davidson’s personal credit card were authorized.  The company conducted an internal investigation and determined that Davidson was spearheading a massive theft.  Davidson was previously sentenced to 28 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.  Davidson’s husband and another friend, Ether Thomas, currently have cases set for trial.                  

 

            Adams was prosecuted in the 400th District Court before Presiding Judge Maggie Jaramillo.  Theft in this case is a first-degree felony punishable by 5-99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000. 

 

Assistant District Attorneys Scott Carpenter prosecuted the case.  Attorney Gerald Moton represented the defendant.
