Former Head of Beauty School Sentenced For Fraud

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A 58-year-old Scottsboro woman will serve 30 months in prison after admitting that she defrauded the U.S. Department of Education out of more than $100,000.

According to U.S. Attorney Alice Martin in Birmingham, U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor Wednesday sentenced Wanda Bell Gaither, the former owner of Gaither and Company Beauty School.

Martin said Gaither pleaded guilty to her role in directing employees to submit bogus Pell Grant applications for which students were not qualified.

Gaither was also ordered to pay restituition.
