Mo. drops suit after veterans agency is repaid

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 she embezzled about $90,000 from 2005 to 2008 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.
