The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says Sheryl Lynne Clark turned herself in at the Garvin County Sheriff Department Thursday night.
The 51-year-old mother was wanted on a warrant charging her with six counts of first-degree forgery and one count of embezzlement. Clark was charged following an investigation by OSBI agents into unauthorized withdrawals from a $50,000 trust fund awarded to her daughter by the Worker’s Compensation Court after the girl’s father died.
The emptied account was discovered when the daughter turned 18 and went to Pauls Valley National Bank, where the trust fund had been established, and found the account had a zero balance.
Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes requested OSBI agents conduct an inquiry into the missing money in December. Agents obtained a warrant for Clark’s arrest Feb. 9. The warrant carried a $10,000 bond.
