Payment plan insufficient to pay debt by deadline

By Sheryl Marsh ∑ 340-2437

Sabrina Stover, who stole thousands from Dr. Roger Moss while she worked for him, has until 2012 to pay $181,185,16 in restitution.

A Morgan County circuit judge gave that order.

The county probation department is allowing her to pay $300 per month, and at that rate she will not have the money repaid by 2012.

The judge also stated in the order that the restitution is to be treated like a civil judgment, meaning it could be settled by levy and execution, according to a circuit court employee.

The employee said officials could satisfy the debt with Stoverís personal assets.

Stover pleaded guilty in April to theft by deception and identity theft. Authorities said she stole cash from the doctorís office and obtained credit cards in his name without his permission.

Circuit Judge Steve Haddock sentenced her to two four-year prison terms, but suspended the sentences and placed her on probation for five years.

She made the first payment on the restitution in September. The restitution amount includes a 12-percent interest rate.

Stover worked as a bookkeeper in Mossí office for several years.

Stover, 50, now lives in Fairhope and works for Eastern Shore Medical Specialists, according to her court file.
