Former Lakeland Student Indicted On Fraud Charges
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 05, 2013
A two-count indictment was filed charging a Cleveland woman with crimes related to the misuse of more than $6,000 in federal financial aid, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Tanya Oliver, 28, is charged with one count each of mail fraud and student aid fraud.
Oliver enrolled at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio. During the 2007-2008 school year, Oliver fraudulently caused more than $6,000 in federal financial aid to be provided to Lakeland for the purposes of funding her education. Those monies were the basis for providing refunds to Oliver in the amount of $5,174.95, according to the indictment.
Oliver obtained the funds for the purpose of using the monies for her own personal use, according to the indictment.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christos M. Georgalis following an investigation by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Inspector General.
If convicted, the defendant's sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, the defendant's role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
