Former suburban police chief pleads guilty
SPRINGFIELD — A former South suburban police chief is pleading guilty again in a fraud scheme related to a $1.25 million state grant in 2009.
Fifty-year-old Regina Evans is the former top cop in Country Club Hills. She pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court Monday to obstruction of justice, conspiracy and witness tampering.
She conspired with an unnamed person to create a false story about job-search training conducted with the state grant through a nonprofit organization called We are Our Brother's Keeper.
She owned the group with her husband, Ronald Evans. He has pleaded guilty in the scheme and is scheduled for sentencing Dec. 2.
Regina Evans pleaded guilty to fraud in June and is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 15 and faces a maximum of more than 50 years in prison.
