Germantown Woman Charged with Extortion

September 23, 2014

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

Traci Lynn Neville of Germantown, was charged with extortion in Conewago Township, Pa., according to court documents filed in Pennsylvania last Tuesday, Sept. 16.

   According to the Conewago Township Police Department, in August, Neville, 46, of Galeway Bay Circle in Germantown, asked her father, a Conewago Township resident, for $2,000. Neville and father have not had a relationship for years. Her father reported to police that he had not had contact with Neville for over two years.

   When Neville didn’t receive a response, she resorted to extorting the money from her father claiming that she would go to the police with sexual molestation allegations.    According to an affidavit filed with Adams County Criminal Court, Neville demanded the money be sent to her place of employment, the law offices of Besthesda-based Offit Kurman.  At this point on Aug. 26, her father went to the police.

   The ensuing investigation led police to intercept and record phone calls between Neville and the victim. The investigation revealed that in exchange for the money Neville would provide a written letter explaining that the alleged molestation never happened and Neville completely made up the accusations.

   On Sept. 6, Neville travelled to Conewago Township to meet with the victim to exchange the letter for the money in the parking lot of a Food Lion. The police were waiting for her and after the letter was exchanged for an envelope containing the money, she was detained by police and charged with extortion, according to court documents.

   Neville is scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Daniel S. Bowman in November.
