HOUSTON (AP) – The authorities accuse a woman in Texas of having participated in an undercooked scheme where she claimed she was served raw hamburger meat at two different locations in a fast food chain.
Cassandra Brooks, a former Lieutenant of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, is charged with insurance fraud and has been imprisoned for up to 10 years in prison if sentenced.
Harris County, District Attorney Kim Ogg says Brooks was awarded more than $ 10,000 as part of an insurance settlement after claiming she had been served raw beef at a Sonic restaurant in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in July 201
The prosecutors say that Brooks made a similar claim to a Sonic in the suburb of Houston a month later.
The court records did not include a lawyer for the 53-year-old Brooks.
