URBANA — A Champaign woman has been indicted for allegedly abusing federal funds intended for COVID-19 relief.

Jasmine L. Morris, 29, who listed an address in the 1700 block of Union Street, made an initial appearance Friday in federal court following her indictment Tuesday by a grand jury for wire fraud.

The indictment alleges that Morris, who works for the U.S. Postal Service, submitted false loan applications and supporting documents to acquire Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans starting in March 2021 and continuing through February 2022.
