Virginia man agrees to pay $15,000 after allegedly stealing from Dawson woman

Note: This article has been updated to reflect court records being sealed. 

A man from another state has agreed to reimburse an elderly Dawson County woman after he was arrested and accused of allegedly stealing over $60,000 from her in 2018 and 2019. 

Samal Kumar Dimdung, 41, of Herndon, Virginia, signed an agreement with the prosecution stating that he would pay the victim back $15,000, according to a dead docket agreement filed June 24 in Dawson County Superior Court. 

A dead docket agreement means a case is postponed indefinitely but can be reinstated at any time by the court, according to the Georgia Court of Appeals. This type of agreement does not constitute an admission of guilt.
