Update August 9: Adrian Coore, who helped his girlfriend, Casaundra White, embezzle more than $200,000 from the Beaufort County Treasurer's Office has entered a guilty plea and been sentenced.

The Island Packet has a full writeup here.

Update March 29, guilty plea: Casaundra White received  a sentence of 13 months, probation, community service, and a charge to repay $210,000 following her cooperation and guilty plea.

Meanwhile a more serious case continues to evolve around her ex-boyfriend, Adrian Coore, involving multiple criminal conspiracy charges. 

Multiple reports abound, but I'll send you to WSAV 3's video for an overview (watch that here,) and Bluffton Today for a detailed report (read that here.)

The case follows another highlighted Beaufort County embezzlement case by Elizabeth Smith, who is still awaiting federal sentencing
