Woman must pay back fraud funds

Jul 2, 2013 The Associated Press

A federal judge has ordered a Gillette woman to pay more than $55,000 after making false benefit claims.

U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl last week ordered 31-year-old Jennifer Nicole Tuttle to make restitution for money she received.

The payments included nearly $12,000 from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and over $43,000 in Medicaid benefits. Skavdahl also placed Tuttle on five years of supervised probation.
