EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) – A former Evansville police officer was sentenced on charges of welfare fraud.
[Police: Officer arrested on felony warrant for welfare fraud]
Amber Lazo pleaded guilty to charges of fraud last month. In return, she was sentenced to one-year probation and ordered to make restitution payments of $400 per month.
If Lazo successfully makes all of those payments for one year, her sentence will be changed to a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
