Arraignment set for Joplin woman on tornado disaster fraud charge

A March 6 arraignment has been scheduled in U. S. District Court in Springfield for Amy Cherie Feagan, 28, also known as Amy Lawrence, on charges of disaster fraud and making false statements to FEMA.

A federal grand jury indicted Ms. Feagan in December.

According to court records, Ms. Feagan applied for disaster assistance between June 3 and June 7, 2011, claiming she had lost her apartment during the Joplin Tornado, when she did not live at the address she told FEMA officials.
