It has taken years and years for this to happen! She has only been sentenced for one of her many scams. In the past she has scammed in adoption, through her local charities, she played off as a victim of Katrina, as a surrogate, even did an illegal adoption and falsified the child's birth certificate! She was convicted and sentenced for setting up a "go fund me" account by pretending to be a family member of the young lady was killed. It just goes to show you how low some people will go and how far they will go when they are constantly getting away with these scams. She reminds me of Halaina Walsh, aka Samantha Keegan.
JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) – A Union County woman is heading to prison after being convicted of scamming people following the death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers. On Monday, Nov. 14, Janet Lee Posey, 41, of Blue Springs pled guilty to one count of false pretense. She was arrested in December 2014 after an investigation revealed she started an internet scam to raise money for the family of Chambers without their consent or knowledge. However, Attorney General Jim Hood says Posey never intended to give that money to the family but instead take it for her own personal use.
Chambers was found burned on Dec. 6, 2014, and later died at a Memphis hospital. Twenty-eight-year-old Quinton Tellis was charged with capital murder for the death. Following her guilty plea, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison with three of those years suspended, leaving seven years to serve. Union County Circuit Court Judge John A. Gregory also sentenced her to three years of post-release supervision and to pay $1,433 in court costs.
