DOJ Grantee Indicted for Additional Bank Fraud and Aggravated Identity Theft Charges


On March 10, 2021, a DOJ grantee was charged with a superseding Indictment adding one count of bank fraud and two counts of aggravated identity theft to a previous Indictment that charged her with seven counts of wire fraud and two counts of bank fraud, in connection with the misuse of federal funds and other fraud related to non-profit and for-profit entities that Hodges operated.  Glenda Hodges was indicted in the District of Maryland, and allegedly committed the additional bank fraud while on pretrial release.  At a hearing on March 11, 2021, Hodges was ordered to be detained pending trial for violating the conditions of her pretrial release.  According to the superseding Indictment, from on or about October 9, 2020 through on or about October 21, 2020, while on pre-trial release, Hodges allegedly defrauded her fourth victim by claiming she would monitor the victim’s finances while the victim prepared to move out of state.  Hodges allegedly drove the victim to her financial institution to withdraw $4,000 cash and a cashier’s check for $71,731.85.  Hodges allegedly then deposited the victim’s money into Hodge’s own bank account and subsequently spent the victim’s money on Hodge’s personal expenditures without authorization.  The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Fraud Detection Office, FBI, and Maryland’s Office of the State Prosecutor.
