A woman in Illinois, Tarnavis Lee, has been sentenced to 3 years in prison for defrauding the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) of nearly $1 million.  Along with co-conspirators Demetra Jackson and Elizabeth McFarland, Lee submitted false and fraudulent claims to DHS’s Child Care Assistance Program—which funds childcare for low-income parents while they work or attend educational programs—for services that were not provided.  The scheme ran for a ten-year period ending in 2019.  USAO CDIL
