A grand jury in Maryland has indicted Prince George's County delegate Tiffany Alston with theft and misconduct in office, according to the Associated Press.

This is not the first indictment for the Democrat. She is already facing charges of using campaign funds to pay for wedding expenses and the salary of a law firm employee.

The new charges stem from allegations that Alston added a law firm employee to the state payroll to pay for work performed at the firm. The state prosecutor says the employee never worked in Annapolis and continued to perform her duties at the firm. The indictment alleges that the state paid her a total of $800 at a rate of $100 per day as a legislative clerk before she resigned in January.
