Kelli Jo Brock, a former probation officer who claimed in 2009 that a masked intruder broke into her home and shot her in the leg, has been found guilty of falsifying a document in a Federal investigation. Brock, who was charged in Federal Court under the name Kelli Jo Craig, was found guilty in Little Rock at around 5 p.m. on Monday.
Robert Frederickson, the man she claimed shot her during a struggle, was acquitted of aggravated residential burglary, first-degree battery, kidnapping and firearm possession charges by a Faulkner County jury in 2010. He spent eight months in jail waiting for the verdict of not guilty.
In May, 2012, a Grand Jury indicted Brock on Federal charges of making false statements to FBI investigators and U.S. Post Office officials investigating Frederickson’s alleged involvement in the shooting and also of submitting a false written statement of the events of the shooting and weeks leading up to it.
In Monday’s Federal jury trial, Brock was found not guilty of making a false statement to a federal agent, but guilty of falsifying a document in a federal investigation.
Federal Judge Leon Holmes instructed the parties to submit filings related to sentencing by Dec. 2, and a sentence may be issued later this year or early next year according to court staff.
