Another arrest has been made of a former Boeing South Carolina employee accused of tax fraud, according to a news release.

​​​​​​​​Earica Moton, 46, of Dorchester County was arrested Tuesday by S.C. Department of Revenue investigators. Moton is charged with three counts of the willful attempt to evade or defeat a tax, the release said.

Moton submitted fraudulent W-4 forms to her employer claiming to be exempt from S.C. income taxes and failed to file state income tax returns, according to the release. The Revenue Department said she evaded $4,312 in state income taxes for 2012-2014. Boeing spokeswoman Elizabeth Merida confirmed Moton formerly worked at the North Charleston campus.

In May, 17 former and current Boeing S.C. employees were arrested on charges of attempting to evade taxes. In April, 13 Boeing S.C. employees were arrested on the same charges.

If convicted, Moton faces up to $10,000 in fines and up to five years in prison per charge.
