CANTON, Ohio — A former Ohio transportation employee accused of defrauding the agency of more than $400,000 has been sentenced to prison. The Canton Repository reports a judge ruled that if 38-year-old Kristy Williams cooperated with authorities, her four-year prison term could be reduced. Williams, the former human resources director of the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, pleaded guilty to aggravated theft, theft in office, and insurance fraud and forgery last week. The mother of four is accused of bilking the public busing agency out of $406,000 through various schemes that include insurance and college tuition reimbursement fraud.
