Fraud case continues for Selma resident

Published 12:21 pm Friday, January 4, 2019

A fraud case involving a Dallas County woman was continued on Friday morning at the Dallas County Courthouse.

Kim Peake was charged last year with allegedly using another family member’s information, social security number and phone number to get a student loan and for credit card fraud, according to Dallas County Sheriff-elect Mike Granthum.

Vaughan Russell, Peake’s attorney, said the case will be on the motion docket for Circuit Court Judge Don McMillian sometime in April.

“The case is being continued,” Russell said.

Peake didn’t appear in court Friday because Russell said ‘’she had some things to work on.’’

Peake was indicted by a Dallas County Grand Jury on seven counts of identity fraud during the week of Sept. 28, 2018.

A new court date was not set.

A motion for a mental evaluation for Peake will be filed in the near future, according to the Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Shannon Holloway.
