Debra Heine, American Greatness, December 22, 2023

AFulton County attorney and former police officer has been convicted of fraudulently obtaining over $7 million in loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).  Shelitha Robertson, a frequent Democrat candidate for local office, allegedly used the funds to purchase luxury items, including a 10-carat diamond ring, a Rolls Royce, and a motorcycle.

The PPP was an SBA-backed loan that helped businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A federal jury in the Northern District of Georgia on Wednesday convicted Robertson of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, three counts of wire fraud, and one count of money laundering, according to a Department of Justice press release.


In addition to using the loans to buy luxury items, Robertson transferred funds to family members and her co-conspirator, Chandra Nelson, according to the DOJ.
