Former Milam County Jail Captain Katrina Carie Douglas entered a plea of guilty to charges of theft by a public servant with final sentencing to follow a background investigation.

Katrina Carie Douglas

Douglas was arrested in December following an investigation by the Milam County Sheriff’s Department and Texas Rangers into theft of money from a Milam County Jail inmate trust fund.

Money in that fund was deposited there for inmates to make purchases at the jail commissary.

Restitution of about $40,000 in stolen money and $15,000 to reimburse Milam County for the cost of auditing is also being sought by the state.

The final sentencing hearing for Douglas has been set for June 21 at 1:30 p.m.

Douglas had resigned her position in January of 2017.

She was accused of taking the money over a three year period.
