JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is dropping a civil suit against a former state accountant after she repaid money taken from the Missouri Veterans Commission.
Stacy Griffin-Lowery was sentenced this fall to probation and community service after pleading guilty in federal court to the misapplication of Veterans Commission money. An indictment alleged that from 2005 to 2008 she embezzled about $90,000 that had been intended to benefit veterans living in nursing homes.
Koster had sued Griffin-Lowery in April seeking to recoup the stolen funds. Koster said Thursday he dropped the lawsuit because the money has since been repaid.
