Shooting Victim Charged with Missing Funds

Keshia Roseboro

WINNSBORO – The Winnsboro woman who last October was shot and gravely wounded by her estranged husband, then an on-duty Winnsboro police officer, is now facing criminal charges of her own after an investigation into her activities as an administrative sergeant at the Fairfield County Detention Center.

Takisha (Keshia) Yolanda Roseboro, 36, was arrested by agents with the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) May 9 at her home on 81 Neason Lane in Winnsboro, after an internal investigation revealed she had allegedly embezzled more than $4,000 in inmate funds from the Detention Center. She has been charged with breach of trust.

Davis Anderson, Deputy County Administrator, said the investigation began as a routine audit of Roseboro’s work activities when she went out on administrative leave after being shot by her estranged husband, Michael Bernard Roseboro, on Oct. 28. Anderson said the audit found Roseboro had left notes to herself on how to balance the system of inmate funds in order to cover her tracks. Once the audit uncovered the discrepancies, the investigation was turned over to SLED.

“Keshia was a good employee,” Anderson said, “she just made a bad mistake.”

Roseboro had been employed with the County since August of 2000 and left on disability following her recovery from the October shooting. Anderson said all the funds have since been paid back to the County.
