Jeweler charged with 33 felonies

On the date listed above, the Morgan County Prosecutor’s Office in Indiana filed charges against 43-year-old former jeweler, Lora Richards. Richards is accused of writing bad checks.

In May 2019, Richards was charged with 33 felonies. Those charges included Delivery of False Sales Document, Theft, and Corrupt Business Influence. She was charged with defrauding more than a dozen customers by selling fake gemstones.

The charges were a result of an investigation into customers’ complaints that Richards sold them fake jewelry and used synthetic gemstones in place of authentic gemstones.

A check deception case was filed against Richards in May 2019. In that case, she allegedly wrote a bad check for $9500. A second bad check was also written to a customer in May 2019 in the amount of $1,500. Richards is scheduled to appear in court on November 8, 2019, for the check deception case.
