Former Dept. of Education employees accused of criminal conspiracy involving ESA Program

Published by

According to the indictment, the suspects approved ESA applications for real and fake students and allowed them into the program using false, forged or fraudulent documentation such as fake birth certificates or falsified special education evaluations. They would then allegedly award those students’ accounts with ESA funds as well as approve expenses for reimbursement. Mayes said the scheme defrauded taxpayers of nearly $615,000.
