A North Liberty woman has been charged with first-degree fraudulent practices.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Melissa Frost, 31, was charged March 30.

In January, police officials met with the co-owner of C&M Tax Service and were reportedly shown evidence that indicated Frost was manipulating the financial records. According to the complaint, in October 2011, the victim was denied access of the financial software by Frost.

Frost reportedly used money from the business account to pay more than $22,000 in credit-card bills and also manipulated the business-accounting records, which caused the filing of inaccurate tax returns to the state and federal governments.

First-degree fraudulent practices is considered a Class-C felony and is punishable by up to 10 years in jail and a maximum fine of $10,000.
