Prince Frederick, MD - The former property manager of the White Sands Civic Association is tentatively scheduled to be sentenced in late January after pleading guilty to a single count of theft scheme $100,000 plus. The felony charge against the defendant, Mattie Michelle Scicchitano, 46 of Lusby, carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in jail or a $25,000 plus calls for restitution to be paid.

Scicchitano entered the guilty plea Monday, Nov. 13 in Calvert County Circuit Court. She was represented by attorney Monte D. Montgomery Jr. The state was represented by Calvert County Assistant State’s Attorney Gary Michael Morgan Jr.

The allegations against Scicchitano were made by White Sands Civic Association President Curt Hilpipre, who notified authorities this past April. Hilpipre alleged Scicchitano’s thefts had been going on for approximately 10 years. The case was investigated by Detective Wells of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office. In May, deputies executed a search and seizure warrant on Scicchitano’s residence. Wells stated in court documents that “numerous items of evidence were seized.” The seized items included electrical items such as laptops, cell phones and tablets.

The investigation revealed Scicchitano conducted “fraudulent transactions” through the civic association’s merchant accounts. Documents the WSCA’s president provided to police indicated that between March 17 and April 17 of this year over 600 transactions totaling approximately $2.25 million were conducted.
