For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

Marita Holland, 32, of Toledo, was charged via criminal information with theft of government funds, said David A. Sierleja, Acting U.S. Attorney.


Holland, in 2012, illegally received two checks from the U.S. Treasury totaling approximately $16,793, according to the information.


If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.


The case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service and is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Gene Crawford.


An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
