JEFFERSON CITY — Attorney General Chris Koster has sued a former Missouri Veterans Commission accountant to recoup about $90,000 allegedly embezzled from the state.

Former Veterans Commission accountant Stacy Griffin-Lowery is accused of stealing $90,192 through reimbursements for cash advances and purchases made on her personal credit card. In 2008, she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft and repaid $17,665 to the Veterans Commission.

Attorney General Chris Koster said he filed the lawsuit Monday in Cole County Circuit Court.
