Former Mayoral Aide Suspected of Misusing Credit Cards Arrested

Belisa Serna-Mayorga, 40SACRAMENTO-

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office issued an arrest warrant Tuesday for a former City of Sacramento mayoral aide suspected of misusing city credit cards.

In August, Sacramento Police investigated Lisa Serna-Mayorga for supposedly racking up about $19,000 in personal expenses on credit cards designated for only official use.

Serna-Mayorga, daughter of former Sacramento Mayor Joe Serna, will be charged with misappropriation of public funds, grand theft of public funds, forgery and making or drawing worthless checks.

She was arrested Tuesday afternoon and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail.

Serna-Mayorga is a former aide to Mayor Kevin Johnson. She resigned in July when she was first accused of misconduct after an internal audit.
