Attorney General's office lays out its case against Phillips

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Attorney General Troy King's office presented evidence that Sherrie Phillips took a $1.8 million check from the estate of Cary Douglas Piper, who had no known heirs until recently.

The AG says Phillips put the funds into a person account, listing her own address and social security number on the account. She then withdrew $516,917.50

From January 22 to April 5 of 2008 Phillips wrote 10 checks from the account and paid:

  • $25,000 to her husband
  • $100,000 to her brother
  • $100,000 to herself 
  • $60,000 for a Cadillac Escalade
  • $23,000 to a Ford dealer for her husband's vehicle

The Attorney General's office says it began an investigation at the Covington County probate office on April, 29 2008, serving a subpoena fo the files and records of the Piper estate.

The next day the AG's office says Phillips went to her bank and made the following actions:

  • Transfer of funds from her personal account back into a public funds account
  • deposited a check from her brother for $449,000
  • deposited a check from another brother for $25,000
  • deposited a check from her husband for $12,000
  • deposited a check from herself for $32,000

After her conviction, Phillips faces 2 to 20 years in prison and up to a $30,000 fine for each count.
