A woman who held the position of director of a child care and preschool facility funded by the state has been accused of embezzling over $75,000 by reporting that more than the actual number of children were enrolled and keeping the extra money.

Jan Coleman was employed as the program director for the Hazlehurst United Methodist Church Child Care and Preschool in Mississippi for several years.

Beginning in late 2014 and extending through July 2018, Coleman allegedly falsified the number of children that were attending the program, which is funded by the state Department of Human Services and used for low-income families in need of childcare.
