Former Housing Authority employee sentenced to supervised release for fraud in embezzlement case

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - A former employee of the South Bend Housing Authority was sentenced to supervised release on Thursday for her role in stealing nearly $6 million in funds from the organization.

Tyreisha Robinson was given time served and two years of supervised released for her charges, which include bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud. She pleaded guilty to those charges in June of 2022 and the rest of her 11 charges were dismissed.

Robinson was given two years for each of her two counts, but they will be served concurrently.

While on supervised release, Robinson must follow several conditions, including paying restitution to the United States District Court Clerk’s Office.
