Former Federal Prison Employee Sentenced To 2 Years

A former federal prison employee has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for

defrauding the families of inmates at the Beaumont federal prison complex. 43-year old

Tanya L Richard, of Beaumont, pleaded guilty this past June to conspiracy to commit wire

fraud. The charges stemmed from a six-year scheme that defrauded the relatives of inmates

by falsely representing that they could obtain reductions in their relatives sentences in exchange

for the payment of cash and wire transfers of funds.
