MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee woman has pleaded guilty to making false bankruptcy reports, after she got over a half-million dollars in 2008 from the Wisconsin Shares child care program. Pamela Kohlheim will be sentenced in May. And her lawyer, William Burke, said he wanted the sentencing delayed as long as possible so he could protect Kohlheim’s rights if she’s indicted on other charges. Reports indicated that Kohlheim and her husband Willie apparently bilked $1.3 million from the state’s child care program for the working poor. Willie Kohlheim is scheduled to be sentenced in April for not disclosing income from Milwaukee’s R-Family Child Care Center. Burke said he wasn’t sure if Pamela Kohlheim was being investigated for child care fraud. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mel Johnson said he could not comment on that. Records also showed that Pamela Kohlheim has filed for divorce.
