Caddo Parish School Board Employee Arrested for Selling Fake Diplomas
A woman who works within the Caddo Parish School Board was arrested on July 7th for forgery. Caddo-Shreveport Financial Crimes Task Force received a report back in September 2019 from Caddo Parish Schools. The report made claims that there were individuals illegally purchasing forged diplomas and transcripts from an employee of the Caddo Parish School Board.
Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Clarissa Harris’ investigation identified Latoya Mosby, 39, was the CPSB employee involved.
The Office of Inspector General Department of Education assisted in the investigation and discovered people used the fraudulent documents to enroll in secondary schools and receive about $482,211 in financial aid.
Mosby was arrested at her home on July 7. She was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center and was charged with forgery. She has since been released on bond.
This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are possible.
