Woman sentenced after claiming to be Katrina Evacuee

       A Longview woman has been sentenced to probation on fraud charges, after claiming to be a "Katrina" evacuee. Investigators say 29-year-old "Tomisha Embry" of Longview posed as a Hurricane Katrina evacuee to collect $2000 in federal aid. Embry received three years probation in a Tyler courtroom. Embry must also pay back the money as restitution.

     She claimed she had a New Orleans home damaged by Katrina and submitted an application to FEMA for disaster assistance.
