Keashia Latriese Davis and people like her are the reason the welfare system is in major need of reform.
She should not receive a lesser sentence for pleading guilty.
A lot of Americans have quite a lot of concerns about the welfare system today. Concerns about whether it’s being exploited, and if it needs to be reformed. A lot of these questions stem from what seems to be a flood of able-bodied citizens just not bothering to work because they can bring home more money by tracking back and forth to the welfare office.
That particular issue is bad enough since it allows those who could be a part of the workforce to burden the system. There’s a whole other issue that arises when citizens actually fraudulently claim various things in order to get more money. Usually, we can count on it being a few extra dependents or a lie of similar size. However, professional welfare collector Keashia Latriese Davis has just put working the system on the top shelf.
Davis has been charged with defrauding the welfare system in 3 states, bringing in a total of $262,691 in food stamps. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, she was able to swindle the American people out of over one-quarter of a million dollars between April 2015 and May 2016.
Via US Herald:
Davis was able to defraud the food stamp system by simply stealing the identities of individuals who were eligible for the program by logging on the Zillow real estate website and then rerouting those benefits meant for those individuals, by postal service straight to her mailbox in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Rather than forcing the government the additional expense of putting on a trial, as bought her some good will and she may receive credit for pleading guilty, with perhaps a reduced sentence.
However, she still faces the potential of up to 20-years in prison, and a fine up to $250,000.
Davis was found guilty of defrauding the state of Utah, along with Louisiana out of $69,506 (where she was born), and also Texas, out of $56,185.
Judge Marshall acknowledges after Davis pleaded guilty to the charges; “There’s a long ways between zero and 20 years, it’s my decision.”
I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a heck of a lot more than what I make in a year. It’s my sincere hope that Judge Marshall finds an adequate way to punish Davis for the lies and duplicity that she exercised at the expense of hardworking Americans.
