State Worker Convicted Of Embezzlement Hired By High-Speed Rail Authority

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A woman who embezzled $320,000 from the California Department of Child Support Services was later hired by the state’s High-Speed Rail Authority.

Carey Moore spent two years in prison for stealing the money in 2007 before applying for the rail position in 2011.

She said the authority never asked about a criminal past when she was hired to make travel plans for officials.

She was fired after the authority noticed her wages were being garnished for restitution.
