Monica Olivo, 34, of Floresville will spend the next five years on probation, as part of a plea arrangement approved Feb. 11 in Wilson County District Court by Judge Donna Rayes of the 81st Judicial District.

The former Wilson County Tax Assessor/Collector’s Office employee pled guilty to theft by a public servant, totaling more than $20,000 but less than $100,000, according to court records. Olivo will be required to make full restitution in the amount of $22,859, of which she already has repaid $5,000. She also will be required to pay court costs.

Olivo’s Oct. 26, 2012, indictment follows her Feb. 20, 2010, arrest after an audit by state investigators determined that Olivo took cash paid for vehicle registrations and voided other transactions in an attempt to balance accounting records. Her indictment alleged that the incidents occurred on or about Oct. 21, 2009.

Also in court Feb. 11, murder suspect Kyle Jacob McKay, 18, was arraigned. Court records indicate that he continues to remain in custody in the Wilson County Jail since his arrest Nov. 14, 2012.

McKay allegedly shot 23-year-old Dakotah Reynolds to death and dumped his body in a remote area of the Quail Run Golf Club north of Stockdale. A group of hog hunters found Reynolds’ body Nov. 13.

McKay’s next scheduled court appearance is a pretrial hearing set for March 11, followed by a docket call April 30. Jury selection ahead of his trial is May 13.

Another suspect set to be arraigned Feb. 11 was not present in court and remains the subject of an active arrest warrant. Real estate agent Ruth Elizabeth Snider is charged with two counts of theft of more than $1,500 but less than $20,000. A third count alleges that she perpetrated this same crime against an elderly victim. This was after rent money collected from tenants of properties she managed allegedly was not remitted to the respective landlords. The incidents occurred between June 2010 and December 2011.

Good time for Liz to come forward - not much of a penalty for pretty much the same crime. Are we in the mist of an Azlan movement in our community? Something is just not right.

Any time crime is committed in the office such as this, the boss needs to answer some questions. That is a valid point that you made, Who Cares?. There may not be enough checking going on to make sure all $ is accounted for. ... More ›

Hopefully if she does not make the restitution that would be a violation of her probation. This is not the first problem with employee mis-conduct in the Tax Assessor/Collectors office. Previously an employee issued a license ... More ›

Probation, really? Something is definitely wrong with this. She should have served some jail time but that would have taken her away from her family. But, oh well! She probably used the money to buy clothes, jewelry, go out ... More ›
