An Ullin woman on Thursday was sentenced to two years of probation for an earlier conviction on two counts of bankruptcy fraud, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Stephen D. Weinhoeft.
Jessica A. Browning, 44, was indicted in August as part of a crackdown on bankruptcy fraud, according to the release.
At a plea hearing, Browning admitted that during federal bankruptcy proceedings, she intentionally failed to disclose a $12,765.47 award she had recently received in a workers' compensation case. She also admitted to giving false testimony while under oath about what she had done with that money at a bankruptcy hearing.
