Woman indicted on fraud charges

No one wants to be accused of fraud, and it can come as a shock when you're accused after many years of service. That's what happened in this case involving a former employee of the Rapides Parish District Attorney's office. The former employee is facing charges for theft and has been indicted by a federal jury. According to a Jan. 30 report, the indictment went through with two counts of theft from a program receiving federal funds. The woman who was indicted had been an employee and bookkeeper at the District Attorney's office from October 1988 through October 2015. She resigned from the position in 2015.

Around 200,000 children end up in emergency rooms every year because of playground accidents. Another 15 children die each year because of playground equipment accidents.
