UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A former federal prison employee in Wisconsin is accused of stealing over $87,000 in false mileage reimbursements. A federal grand jury indicted 43-year-old Christopher Seifer of Westfield yesterday on four counts of mail fraud, and a charge of stealing government property.
According to prosecutors Seifer was an electronics technician at the federal prison in Oxford when he began submitting expense forms for travel to health clubs to rehabilitate a work injury. That was in 2006. Investigators said Seifer turned in almost 1,4000 false mileage claims that were paid by the U-S Labor Department over a period of several years.
