Money court cases in Mono

MONO COURTHOUSEThe US attorney will file an embezzlement case against 51-year-old Roxanna Foley of Bridgeport, a former Eastern Sierra Community Bank manager.  Mono Assistant District Attorney Tim Kendall said that Foley appeared in court Monday, and he requested her matter be taken off calendar.

Kendall said that the US Attorney is “preparing their case and will seek an indictment against Ms. Foley before a Grand Jury.”  If indicted, Foley will then go to court in the Sacramento Federal Court.  Authorities have not yet revealed how much money is at issue.

In another Mono County case, Cheryl Goode of Bridgeport has entered not guilty pleas to allegations that she misappropriated funds from the Bridgeport Public Utility District.  In a May press release, the Mono DA’s office said that their investigation revealed that Goode “issued herself numerous unsubstantiated payments.  Goode is currently out of jail on $25,000 bond.  Her next court appearance is scheduled for July 17th.

    Good point. Bernie Madoff and Robert Stanford weren’t exactly in rural areas and stealing money from poor country folk.

    Tough Times criticizes Bridgeport when he says “Perhaps Bridgeport is a wee bit too remote with not much to do, day in and day out.”.

    Just One asks him to leave Bridgeport alone for many reasons.

    And you state that no one said anything negative about Bridgeport? UH… yes, someone did.

    The only reason these two cases are news at all is because we ARE so small. By the way, Mammoth has had some embezzlement scandals recently as well…. a bookkeeper and a lawyer! Being small has nothing to do with the quality or intelligence of the individuals who live here: those individuals are a reflection of their own quality, not the town.

      Many if not most of the citizens have become soley dependent upon the government to sustain their livelyhood and existence I.e. Bridgeport being the County seat. They live in mortal fear of the county seat relocating to where the money is (a common sense notion that is being played out through America).
      while. Everybody knows if it weren’t for this situation, Bridgeport would become a ghost town overnight. It’s all about hard, cold economics the taxpayers that foot the bill.

    Seems to me, there are quite a few people who once lived in Mammoth and for one reason or another (mostly the cost of living) left and moved to Bridgeport. Why are these people the first to complain bitterly and often about anybody who chooses to live in Mammoth?

    Well put Cat.
    Hard to understand why the bad attitude from our Bridgeport neighbors?

    Just one………………who said anything negative about Bridgeport???? On the other hand you sure said some negative things about Mammoth.

    Shame on you!

    Wow! 2 Bridgeport ladies accused of money crimes.

    Perhaps Bridgeport is a wee bit too remote with not much to do, day in and day out.

    The idle mind is the Devil’s playground.

      Tough times…..Just think,all they got to do is drive about 60 miles south…to Mammoth Lakes…..where all the “fun” times are…and where all the intelligent people live…..right ?

        From your posts it sound as if “STUPID” resides at your place!

      • eye of the beholder June 15, 2012 at 8:34 am #

        Wayne … There are real social and economic factors involved to explain why the population of Bridgeport is shrinking and Mammoth Lakes is growing … as far as “the intelligent people” living there … I guess you can say … you are as smart as where you live … so its all relative … right?

          Good Golly, i have said this before. 18 years ago I moved to Bridgeport from Mammoth. The population then was 550 people, today we rest at around 843 this is an INCREASE in population. We don’t want to be as big as Mammoth never have, never will. To me it seems like the desire to grow has just cost the town a big ole fat BANKRUPTCY. I will take small town life any day. People have alway’s come to Bridgeport for the fishing, the hunting, the camping and the atmosphere. We about ready to celebrate our 150th Fourth of July. Mammoths big claim to fame is a mountain completely dependent upon the whims of mother nature. NO SNOW, limited folks. Please leave Bridgeport alone, we don’t need, want or deserve your self important critiscisms
