Woman Pleads Guilty To Stealing TennCare Funds

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities said a Jackson woman has pleaded guilty to stealing money intended for TennCare recipients.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Tammy Marie Swann diverted thousands of dollars in TennCare funds for her own personal gain while working at the Helen R. Tucker Adult Developmental Center in Ripley in 2010.

The Lauderdale County Grand Jury returned an indictment for Swann, charging her with one count of theft over $1,000.

She pleaded guilty and a judge sentenced her on May 19 to two years' probation. She must also pay more than $7,000 in restitution.
