RALEIGH, N.C. (WAVY) — A North Carolina corrections officer faces up to 10 years in prison for fraud.

Tana Eguasa Hill, 43, plead guilty to theft of government funds for fraudulently submitting North Carolina Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (NC HOPE) loan applications for emergency rental assistance. 

According to officials, Hill submitted fictitious tenant lease agreements for multiple properties in Hertford County as part of her NC HOPE loan applications.

The NC HOPE program utilized $51.5 million from the CARES Act to provide housing and utility assistance.

Hill’s husband was sentenced for the same crime last November.
