Edwardsville woman who robbed bank 12 years ago sentenced to prison after forging check

Belleville News-Democrat

An Edwardsville woman has been sentenced to three years in state prison for violating probation by committing forgery almost immediately after pleading guilty to fraud in Cook County Circuit Court.

Silk P. Lumpkins, 47, formerly of the Chicago area, also served time in federal prison for robbing a bank 12 years ago. In July, Lumpkins pleaded guilty to Class 3 felony state benefits fraud for omitting income and asset information from her application for a Chicago Housing Authority voucher program, according to a news release from Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul’s office.
