SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A woman was indicted by a grand jury concerning a Dollywood Foundation My People Fund scheme.

The court believes Candy Joy Jeffries Brocuglio and Jason Ronald Santore, Jr. participated in a scheme to receive money from the Dollywood Foundation. The My People Fund was created to help wildfire victims in Sevier County.

According to the documents, Brocuglio helped Santore receive money from the fund by identifying property addresses and other information in order to apply. Santore was not eligible to receive funds.

Also, court documents say Brocuglio forged writing in order to defraud a victim. The court says she tried to exercise control over the victim’s property and money. Brocuglio used coercion against the victim in order to threaten to falsely accuse him of insurance fraud.
