Former T-Mobile employees sentenced for taking money intended to pay for college

Two former employees of T-Mobile who took advantage of their employer’s willingness to help pay for college classes were sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court.

U.S. District Court Judge J. Randal Hall gave Kenneth Gorham 21 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release and sentenced Shantae Evans to 33 months followed by three years on supervised release.

Gorham will have to repay the company $55,080 and Evans the same amount plus an additional $118,387.

Gorham and Evans plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud for taking the payments meant to pay for college courses. During the investigation, 33 of 41 employees questioned admitted to fraudulently taking the money.
