Danville, VA Police Department Media Releases

Posted on: June 28, 2011


Jessica Simona Griffith, age 32, of Danville was arrested Tuesday afternoon for two (2) counts of grand larceny. The charges stem from incidents reported earlier this year where the victims gave money to Griffith in the belief that they were donating to a program named the Utility Relief fund to help the indigent pay their utility bills. Griffith was served and released Tuesday on her signature.

For clarification, the City of Danville participated in a telethon fundraiser with Ms. Griffith on WGSR TV earlier this year. This fundraiser was an effort to raise money for the city's Neighbors Helping Neighbors program. These charges are not in any way related to this particular telethon.
