County Files Civil Suit Against Reavis

The former Vance County employee accused of embezzling 400-thousand-dollars is facing not only criminal charges, but also a civil suit. The civil suit filed by Vance County alleges that Christa Reavis and her ex-husband Charles Reavis conspired to steal money from the county since 2007. County Attorney Jonathan Care said the suit was filed in hopes that the court orders Reavis to repay the county for the money stolen. Reavis was arrested on August 19th, and charged with 49 counts of forgery and counterfeiting.
