TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida A&M University's events director is facing travel expense and per diem fraud charges.
A Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman said Tuesday that Tammy Hamlet turned herself in to authorities Monday night. She was freed on her own recognizance.
The 45-year-old woman is facing eight misdemeanor counts. She is accused of defrauding $1,821.41 from the university.
FLDE spokesman Gretl Plessinger said the investigation was continuing and there may be other arrests.
A university spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Hamlet was not in her office Tuesday and did not immediately respond to an email.
