Ex-Girlfriend Of Former Lee Prosecutor Charged With Fraud

Posted December 22, 2004

— The ex-girlfriend of a former Lee County prosecutor is accused of spending his money without permission.

Former Lee County District Attorney Bill Huggins went to jail for 10 months on embezzlement and obstruction of justice charges. Prosecutors said he wanted his former girlfriend, Melissa Davis, to kill his wife. When Huggins left jail in August, he had the support of his wife. He said his relationship with Davis was over.

"I hope that I never bump into her. I hope that I never see her again. I don't harbor any ill feelings toward her, but I have no desire to ever see her again," he said in an August interview.

According to Sanford police, Davis used a credit card in Huggins' name without his consent. Police said she charged more than $500. The 37-year-old is now charged with financial transaction fraud and financial identify fraud.

Davis is out of jail on bond. WRAL was unable to reach her or Huggins for comment.
