Rita Hunter prison sentence to begin August 1

The prison sentence of former Jasper County Public Administrator Rita Hunter, who was sentenced to one year and one day in prison during a hearing in federal court in Springfield last week, will begin August 1, according to documents filed today in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

The court is recommending that Mrs. Hunter be placed in a federal prison in close proximity to Springfield.

Mrs. Hunter pleaded guilty to one count of document fraud. As part of a plea agreement, charges of health care fraud, theft of public money, Social Security fraud and Medicaid fraud were dropped.
