Woman out on parole files for unemployment from school she defrauded

Jacque Nelson, out of prison on parole, has filed for comp pay from the school she defrauded, according to reports


Jacque Nelson, who went to prison in January after pleading guilty to fraudulent schemes, filed for unemployment last week saying the Bouse School District owes her ‘comp pay’, according to George Nault, president of the district’s board.

Nelson was released October 13th on parole, according to public records.

“What really cracks me up is the fact that she was not fired,” Nault said. “She resigned when she got caught stealing. She didn’t get fired, she quit.”

Nelson was accused of writing herself checks from school funds while she worked there in administration. Nault said the affair cost the small school $68,000, including forensic accounting fees. In January she received 1.5 years in prison and 7 years ‘white collar’ probation at La Paz County Superior Court. The judge was allowed a prison sentence of up to 2 years.

According to public records, Nelson spent much of her time in prison working in the kitchen before being granted parole last month.

“[Nelson] robbed every child in the school,” said Nault in January.

“She really has some nerve,” he added today.

Parole is a supervised release granted by the Arizona Department of Corrections for which statutory eligibility is usually upon completion of one-half or two-thirds of the imposed sentence.
