Jury convicts two in feeding program fraud

Posted By on Thu, Apr 6, 2017 at 11:27 AM

KATV reports that a federal court jury in Little Rock this morning returned guilty verdicts on all counts against two people charged in a multi-million-dollar scheme for claiming federal money for feeding phantom poor children.

Jacqueline Mills and Anthony Waits had claimed innocence. Mills faced 39 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering in a scheme that allegedly sent her $2.7 million. Waits was charged with conspiracy. He allegedly got kickbacks for recruiting friends and family into the scheme. A dozen people have pleaded guilty in the fraud scheme that the government said scammed more than $11 million.

Sentencing will be later.
