Federal authorities say two New Jersey women have admitted to defrauding a charity out of more than $7 million in donated HIV and cancer medications.
New Jersey's U. S. attorney says the women pleaded guilty to stealing from the charity by using their access to a company hired to administer the program.
Forty-seven year-old Keisha Jackson of Perth Amboy and 26-year-old Jameshia Bryant of South River entered their guilty pleas Tuesday in Trenton.
Bryant is accused of entering approximately 950 fraudulent computer orders so that medicines that could be resold at a profit were delivered to Jackson's home and other addresses involved in the scheme.
Each pleaded to a count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. Both are scheduled for sentencing in February..

Freezing rain changes to rain through the rest of the morning. Many driving challenges. We gradually change to all rain through about noon. Sun makes a brief appearance later on. High in the lower 40s today.
One more wintry system is set to move through our area tomorrow morning. We could get about an inch of snow in Philly...a bit more to our south.
