6 years in prison for DuPage man who stole student aid

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to stealing more than $225,000 in student loans from the College of DuPage has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Judge Alex McGimpsey handed down the sentence to Cedric Ramsey, 43, of Roselle, the DuPage County state’s attorney said.

Ramsey pleaded guilty in December to one count of theft over $100,000. His co-defendant, Mary Allen, 40, pleaded guilty to one count of forgery and was sentenced to serve 30 days in county jail and pay $9,000 in restitution.

An investigation found that Ramsey recruited friends who gave him information to apply for admission to the College of DuPage and get federal loans and grants. The recruits then withdrew from classes, received tuition refunds, and split the cash with Ramsey.

State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said the scheme began to unravel when a woman said she had received a tuition bill but had never attended.

Ramsey will be required to pay restitution of nearly $217,000.
