MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA:    The United Government case against Headland’s Anna Marie Knowles resulted in NOT GUILTY verdicts this week in United States Federal Court.

On or about February 26, 2018 the United States Government arrested this young lady and charged her in United States Federal Court with: charges of wire fraud, theft of government property, and using a false document in a matter under the jurisdiction of the federal government.


 


This case was investigated by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General.  Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan S. Ross is prosecuting the case.


Dothan Criminal Defense Attorney Matt Lamere was able to show that the United States Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General, well they could send out a press release trashing Ms. Knowles, attempt to ruin her reputation, cost her a lot of heart ache and money. But Lamere was about to show to 12 men and women that the United States Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General could not walk the walk and prove the allegations against Ms. Knowles.


 


The jury of 12 men and women returned UNANIMOUS NOT GUILTY verdicts of Ms. Knowles.


 


By the way…the United States of America Government was quick to send out a press release when they arrested Ms. Knowles with their allegations. No press release has been sent out clearing her name that the United States Federal Court could only “talk the talk” but could not “walk the walk” when it came time.


 


Matt Lamere is a long time practicing criminal defense attorney in Dothan Alabama. He handles other type cases but is a very great lawyer who knows his stuff.


 


Congratulations to Ms. Knowles. I realize that since this case has gone on your life has been a living nightmare. You made a terrific decision when you hired Matt Lamere. Perhaps you can now get on with your life.


 


As an American Citizen, I wish to apologize for the actions of the United States of America Federal Court for their allegations and attempts to destroy your life.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Monday, February 26, 2018


Employee of United States Department of Agriculture Office in Houston County Arrested After Being Charged with Crop Insurance Fraud


       Montgomery, Ala. –    Today, Anna Marie Knowles, 36, of Headland, Alabama, was arrested on charges of wire fraud, theft of government property, and using a false document in a matter under the jurisdiction of the federal government, announced United States Attorney Louis V. Franklin, Sr., from the Middle District of Alabama.  Knowles was employed in the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency office located in Dothan, Alabama. 


       The charges stem from allegations that Knowles was carrying out a crop insurance fraud scheme.  According to the indictment, in 2016, Knowles obtained crop insurance through a federal program, the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).  NAP is a USDA program that provides financial assistance to producers of non-insurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory, or prevented planning occur due to a natural disaster.  Knowles insured a crop of summer squash that she was planning to grow on land in Houston County, Alabama.  Thereafter, Knowles filed a claim through the federal crop insurance program.  In that claim, she falsely reported that a drought had caused her to lose the majority of her squash crop.  She also submitted forged receipts to establish that she had spent money to purchase squash seed and fertilizer.  After filing the claim, Knowles fraudulently obtained $116,500.00 through NAP.  The indictment also states that, in her job at the USDA office, Knowles was responsible for administering federal crop insurance programs in Houston County. 


       If convicted of the most serious charge, Knowles faces a maximum sentence of 20 years’ in federal prison.  She also faces substantial monetary penalties and restitution. 


       An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed.  The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.


       This case was investigated by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General.  Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan S. Ross is prosecuting the case.
