The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Arizona resident Nora Liliana Skinner Reyes, a Paralegal Specialist employed by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, has been indicted in U.S. District Court in Tuscon for allegedly making false statements during an employee security interview.
Reyes allegedly denied that she had been terminated from her part-time employment at Bank of America for misconduct arising out of the theft of bank monies. The allegations also include denying knowledge that she was the subject of a misconduct investigation at Bank of America and providing “false information on a Declaration for Federal Employment document.”
A conviction for False Statements to Government Agents or Agencies carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine or both.
