Todd J. Leparski was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison to be followed by three years of supervised release, and pay restitution to IDES in the amount of $298,218.

IDES brought the case to the US Attorney General for the Northern District of Illinois, and was just made aware that sentencing occurred last week.

IDES Director Rowell said: “Stealing unemployment insurance benefits is not a victimless crime. It hurts every honest taxpayer, worker and business owner in our state,” IDES Director Jay Rowell said. “Recovering stolen money and fighting waste, fraud and abuse shows that we take seriously our role in leveling the playing field and growing Illinois’ economy.”
