A process server who formerly worked as a Las Vegas police officer and an office manager for his company have been criminally charged concerning dozens of allegedly false filings in court cases in Nevada.

Maurice Carroll, 41, is accused of filing 17 false affidavits of service in May and June. Carroll was indicted today, and he is charged in the Clark County District Court case with 35 felony counts including perjury and obtaining money under false pretenses, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The filings allegedly were made to help a debt collector obtain default judgments without ever serving the debtors.

An office manager with Carroll’s company, On Scene Mediations, Vilisia Coleman, 46, is accused of lying in affidavits. Her case is also expected to go before a grand jury soon.
