The sentencing of Jeanine Arnett, former chief of staff for Loudoun County Board of Supervisors chairwoman Phyllis Randall (D-At Large), and her husband, Diallo Arnett have been rescheduled for Nov. 8, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Jeanine Arnett, who served as the executive director of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. prior to joining the chairwoman’s office, pleaded guilty to bank fraud on April 20 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Her husband pleaded guilty on April 28.
Between approximately October 3, 2017 and Sept. 15, 2019, Jeanine Arnett misappropriated more than $150,000 from the organization’s bank accounts through, among other things, ACH money transfers and credit card transactions, the attorney’s office stated.
The two face up to 30 years in jail after pleading guilty in April to a charge of embezzling more than $150,000. The charge carries a statutory penalty of up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1,000,000, or twice the pecuniary gain or loss of the offense.
