Day was indicted for theft of property over $60,000 in an alleged scheme between August of 2006 and April of 2010.
She is free on $30,000 bond according to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich.
The investigation showed that the bookkeeper would offer 10% discounts if patients paid their bills in cash, but that she would then record the payments as credit card transactions.
An audit showed that Day collected more than $77,000 from 93 cash payments from 2006 to 2010.
There was no record of the money being deposited into the Dr. Stephen Thompson’s business account.
