State accepts guilty pleas from Nancy and Zach New in welfare case

The News had filed their guilty pleas to the state charges last Wednesday. Nancy New, a former teacher, has pleaded guilty to four charges of bribing public officials, six counts each of wire fraud, and one count racketeering. The maximum sentence for her deal is 100 years. However, prosecutors recommended that she be sentenced to the state to a lesser or equal time to her federal sentence once her federal sentencing has been completed. State prosecutors recommend Nancy New spend her entire sentence in federal prison. This will allow her to avoid time in more harsh state prisons and not serve any additional time for state charges. In the federal case, she pleaded guilty to money laundering. This carries a maximum sentence that can be up to ten years.

He pleaded guilty not only to racketeering but also to wire fraud. The same deal was offered by state prosecutors to him, except that he will serve the federal case for the same number of years. In the federal case, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit wire fraud. He is currently serving a maximum of five years in prison. To ensure Zach could serve his sentence in federal prisons, the prosecution split Zach’s charges in a separate bill. This document is filed when a defendant agrees not to be indicted by the grand jury. Both Nancy and Zach New agreed to cooperate with the prosecutors and testify against each other. Sources close to the investigation say that both federal and state criminal investigations are ongoing. This could lead to additional charges against other people.
