Tanya Marie-Meech Boggio was sentenced to 12-60 months in prison for unemployment insurance fraud on Wednesday.
The sentencing is a result of her role in an unemployment insurance fraud scheme with Richard James Penardo, who is scheduled to stand trial for his role in the scheme on July 18.
In June 2013, the state of Nevada filed a criminal complaint charging Boggio with multiple crimes relating to the unlawful filing of $4700 in unemployment insurance claims.
The charging documents state that Boggio filed claims for unemployment insurance benefits on behalf of Penardo.
The documents also state that in doing so, Boggio falsely stated that Penardo was able to work, failing to disclose the fact that he was incarcerated on forgery charges at the time.
