Request for letters supporting embezzlement sentencing sent

Former Plumas County District Attorney James Reichle has volunteered to help recover stolen funds from Indian Valley Community Services District.

Reichle said he will be working under the supervision of the district’s lawyer, Gregory Einhorn, to help establish restitution against former general manager Leanna May Moore.

Moore, who was the district’s GM from 2006 to 2012, pleaded no contest in June to embezzling $626,000 from the district.

She faces 10 years in prison plus fines and restitution that are expected to exceed $1 million. Moore, who is free on $100,000 bail, is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 12 in Plumas County Superior Court in Quincy.

Reichle said he will be putting forth “maximum effort” to get the most restitution possible. He said this not only includes directly embezzled funds, but could include reimbursement for potential financial strain resulting from the fraud.

In addition to Reichle’s efforts, District Attorney David Hollister is searching for Indian Valley community members who were affected by Moore’s actions — whether financially or personally.

Any information obtained could help the DA during the sentencing hearing.

Those who do come forward may be invited to make a statement during the sentencing hearing.

Reichle urged anyone who has been impacted, in no matter how small a way, to come forward by writing a letter to the DA.

Letters can be mailed to Public Administrator, Attn: Jessica Beatley, 520 Main St., Room 404, Quincy, CA 95971.

Letters should be mailed as soon as possible.
