Sentence Handed Down in Fraud Case Against Woman from Springfield

A woman from Springfield is set to spend over five years in prison following her sentencing on Tuesday.

34-year-old Lisa Gee pleaded guilty last November to two separate charges, one count of mail fraud and one count of wire fraud after admitting to falsifying three separate PPP loan requests.

U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool sentenced Gee to five years and one day in prison for the guilty plea.

She will not be eligible for parole, and was also ordered to forfeit over $58 thousand to the government.

Reports say Gee had lied on the application forms, answering “no” when asked if she had been convicted of a felony in the last year or five years.

Prosecutors produced evidence of multiple convictions against Gee for stealing mail, credit card fraud and passing a forged check as recently as 2017.
