New York announced the sentencing of Keisha Relf Davis, a New York State Department of Education vocational counselor, for taking part in a scheme that stole nearly $2.4 million from New York State. In September 2014, a Bronx County grand jury indicted Relf Davis along with co-defendants, Juan Cabrera and Juani Ortiz, who were already sentenced on Grand Larceny charges. Relf Davis was sentenced to two to six years in state prison by the Honorable Justice Steven Barrett.
