GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A Fruitvale woman who pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation in connection with a $38,000 welfare fraud investigation faces fresh allegations that she continued to take public-assistance dollars in violation of a court order.
Mesa County District Judge Richard Gurley issued an arrest warrant Friday for 34-year-old April Creasman after she allegedly failed to appear in Gurley's courtroom to answer allegations in a complaint filed by Mesa County's Probation Department.
According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, the complaint alleges that Creasman recently admitted to receiving food-stamp assistance after being disqualified from the program because of her conviction in May.
