McGaughey was indicted on charges of telecommunications fraud, aggravated theft, unauthorized use of property, identity fraud and tampering with records, according to a list of indictments released Monday by the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.

She was being held without bond, pending arraignment Friday in Warren County Common Pleas Court in Lebanon.

The case against McGaughey, office manager and bookkeeper for the Nelson & Associates office in Deerfield Twp. since December 2012, began after a supervisor went to her house after she didn’t come work in May 2019, according to Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.

It was unclear how McGaughey was found at the Blue Ash business.
