Alicia Newby, 29, cried throughout a court hearing Sunday on a felony charge of continuing a financial crime enterprise after she allegedly racked up in excess of $12,000 in fraudulent charges, including more than $4,000 that was canceled after Henson’s manager noticed the bogus transactions in August, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Prosecutors did not identify Newby’s alleged targets, but police and court records cited by the newspaper list the Emmy-nominated actress as one victim in the case. It’s unclear how Newby and Henson were connected, but investigators are now probing whether Newby victimized any other cast members from the hit Fox show, a police source told the newspaper.
