Woman Sentenced To Prison In Tutoring Fraud Scheme

BALTIMORE (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Reisterstown woman who billed Baltimore public schools for thousands of hours of tutoring that were never performed to 10 years in prison, with all but 18 months of the sentence suspended.

Tracy Queen will be on probation for 10 years when she is released and she has been ordered to pay more than $150,000 back to the city school system. A statement issued by the office of State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davis says students were cheated out of nearly 4,000 hours of tutoring by Queen and her company, Queen’s Mobile Education, which she ran out of her home.

School officials say they terminated her contract last year, but said when she was indicted that they were only aware of problems concerning a 2009 contract.
