CAPE GIRARDEAU -- The KFVS-12 television news reporter accused of stealing from her family has denied the allegations.
Tiffany Sisson offered her comments in a written statement Tuesday afternoon on her arrest for felony theft/stealing (value of property or services is $500 or more but less than $25,000).
"I am very displeased that anyone would attempt to harm and embarrass me with hurtful actions and allegations that are absolutely not true," Sisson, 34, wrote. "I pray the truth will come out and prove that I have done nothing wrong. This is a family matter. Any bitterness on the part of my estranged family, whom I have constantly shown nothing but love, will unfortunately have to be settled in the legal system and will ultimately prove my innocence. I truly thank God for my friends who know the truth and are standing behind me."
Sisson, whose address is listed as Oran in court documents, turned herself in to the Scott County Sheriff's Department Monday evening and was released after posting a $20,000 bond on charges of stealing while acting as guardian/
conservator of the estate for a relative.
It is alleged Sisson took more than $20,000 for her personal use, depriving the estate of the money.
No court date is set in the case at this time.
