Charges against Rossy reduced to 91

By Deb Murphy

In a brief court session this morning, the 137 charges against Dawndee Rossy were reduced to 91 by appointed judge Philip Argento.

Argento anticipated the resumption of trial proceedings, but defense attorney David Evans opted to hold off until Tuesday morning.

Rossy was arrested in April 2013 with the primary charge being embezzlement of $1.5 million from Health and Human Services. Testimony in the trial started in late February. So, what’s one more day.

Following a defense motion, draft judgement and a round of responses, Argento ruled that the 500-plus pieces of evidence all stand.

The charges that have been dismissed include identity theft of those who did not testify in court as well as counts of conspiracy to commit forgery. Despite the latter ruling, the charges of forgery are still in play.

Heck NO, she’s not in custody ! I know some people say the judge makes sure that bail money can’t come from stolen money, but when you are accused of embezzling 1.5 mil., where do you think the bail $$ came from ? (and attorney’s don’t take on a case… Read more »

They say she took 1.5 doesn’t mean she did. And yes they check throughly where bail came from. Bail came from family. Thought you were smarter than that Rick. The court system moves at a snails pace. Some man just murdered his wife in chalfant Valley and the most of… Read more »

YES, I know they check and re-check and RE_CHECK where bail $$ comes from. Her bail was originally 500,000.00 dollars,and with a reduction, it was lowered to 250,000.00. If she (her family you say) went through a bondsman, that’s 25 grand you don’t get back. Add that with what her… Read more »

By the looks of things,,if this trial even continues and all the charges aren’t dropped,her penalty is probably going to end up being probation and community service…

Beyond a Reasonable doubt!

Does the standard somehow bother you low inyo?

Well,Presto,unless the D.A. is on a personal vendetta and a witch-hunt,I’d have to think 91 charges… (NINETY-ONE)…..there’s got to be some good evidence against her….we’ll see how it turns out….if it’s all made up,or if that paper trail will lead to at least a few convictions….my bet is you probably… Read more »

The OJ jury probably did make the right decision. Being found not guilty means the prosecution didn’t prove their charges not that you are innocent. A racist cop who perjured himself on the stand gathered much of the evidence. There was no major evidence and the little, evidence they did… Read more »

The D.A. is playing thee “let’s throw a bunch of mud on a wall and see what sticks game”

Over 1/3 of the mud fell off. More to come I’m sure
