SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An in-home day care provider in Sioux Falls must repay more than $60,000 to the state after admitting to overbilling for low-income meal and child care subsidies.

Fifty-four-year-old Jeremiah Nimely was accused of submitting false child care reimbursement claims to Child Care Assistance, the Department of Social Services and the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1D1g1vV ) that a judge suspended a four-year prison sentence for social services fraud but ordered Nimely to repay the money.

Court documents show $60,411 of the $176,663 that Nimely received over a two-year span was fraudulently claimed.
