Woman Jailed for Fraud Against Va. Children's Program

May 28, 2010

A Richmond woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for defrauding a state-run program that helps children with birth-related neurological injuries.

Iris Allen was sentenced Thursday in federal court. She also is subject to a monetary judgment of nearly $1.3 million

Allen pleaded guilty in February to one count each of health care fraud and aggravated identity theft. She admitted taking nearly $800,000 from the Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Fund.

Allen, who served as a benefits manager for the fund for more than four years, submitted false invoices for payments to companies she created.
