Recent charges not Frey's first brush with the law

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Legal documents show the 2011 charges against Diana Frey are not her first brush with the law.

In 1982 Diana Frey began working at the Mount Healthy Fire Department as a "probationary squad person". At the time, however, she was known as Diana Weiler.

Station records show she only lasted sixteen months before getting caught up in controversy. Fire Department documents show she was suspended in September of 1983 following charges stemming from a theft of funds from the station's Life Squad Association.

According to Hamilton County Court documents, Frey knowingly took Life Squad Association funds from three different accounts totaling at least $1600. The funds were taken without consent; an act deemed a felony in the fourth degree.

Other documents state the crime resulted in a conviction of theft by deception which came with a fine of $500.

She was sentenced to one year at the Ohio State Reformatory for Women but the court suspended that sentence and instead placed her on a five year probation.

The Life Squad Association was later dissolved following a merger of the Life Squad with the Mt. Healthy Fire Department in the early 90's.
