A Billings woman who admitted defrauding a bank and investors with false claims, including that her daughter had died of leukemia, was back in federal court Thursday on charges that she violated release conditions.
Angela Corson Smith, 36, waived a preliminary hearing during an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Cavan. Her case will go before U.S. District Judge Susan Watters.
If Smith is found to have violated conditions of her supervised release, the judge could order her back to prison.
Watters sentenced Smith in May 2014 to 27 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release. The judge also ordered $151,000 restitution to seven victims. Smith began her supervised release in July 2016.
