BEAUMONT (AP) – A Southeast Texas woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for her role in a scheme in which the families of federal inmates were defrauded of more than $4 million. Tanya Richard was sentenced Friday during a court hearing in Beaumont after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Prosecutors say the 43-year-old Richard – a federal prison employee – took part in a nationwide scheme in which inmate families paid millions of dollars for reductions in their relatives’ sentences.
