3 Monroe women plead guilty in fraud scheme
MONROE - Three Monroe grocery store workers have pleaded guilty for their roles in a scheme to exchange SNAP and WIC benefits to customers for cash and ineligible items.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said Wednesday 27-year-old Angela Woods, of Monroe, pleaded guilty to one count of criminal conspiracy before U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen L. Hayes. The plea will become final when accepted by U.S. District Court Judge Robert G. James.
Finley says 42-year-old Willie Mae Woods-Jackson, of Dallas, pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy Monday, and 45-year-old Kimberlia Harris, of Monroe, pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy Tuesday.
During the time the scheme took place, Finley says the women acquired approximately $7 million.
The women will be sentenced on Dec. 8.
