The I Love CVille Show headlines (Monday, January 27)

1. Let’s remember Paige Rice. From The Daily Progress: “The former Charlottesville Clerk of Council/Chief of Staff Paige Rice was handed a six-month suspended sentence in July, 2019 after she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor embezzlement.

Rice originally was charged in June with felony embezzlement, which carried a possible maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

The charges came after officials discovered that she kept an Apple Watch and iPhone X that were purchased with city funds despite no longer being employed by the City of Charlottesville.

The watch and iPhone were purchased using city funds on Dec. 13, 2017, at a total value of $766.98. They were connected to an AT&T account covering devices used by City Council. Bills for the watch and phone were paid through a city-issued credit card through mid-October.

On her last official day, AT&T fulfilled a request to transfer the phone to another provider. Platania said it was added to a Verizon account for Rice’s mother.”

In 2013, former Charlottesville Registrar Sheri Iachetta and former Electoral Board member Stephanie Commander faced charges for using city tax money to cover city-issued cell phones for Iachetta’s husband, Pat Owen, and Commander, neither of whom held positions with the city at the time.

Both accepted plea agreements and received 90-day suspended sentences but were required to perform 200 hours of community service.
