LANSING (WKZO) -- A former worker in the Department of Human Services has pled guilty to charges of fraud.

Dawn Simmons of Belleville abused her position as an Eligibility Specialist to process false claims in her brother's name between 2009 and 2012.  She filed the claims on co-worker's computers without their knowledge and collected near 20-thousand dollars in aid.

Simmons is scheduled to be sentenced June 26th and could face up to ten-years in prison.
