Rea Lynn Lake

Rea Lynn Lake has been charged with a felony of fraudulently receiving child welfare payments to the tune of $18,738.90 by failing to report her live-in boyfriend’s income when applying for and renewing child care benefits, according to documents filed in Muskogee County District Court.

The investigation into her status came when two of her supervisors at DHS, where she was employed as a child welfare worker, overheard her saying she “didn’t have to lie anymore” to receive child care subsidies. Her boyfriend reported her address as his own, opened utility accounts in his name and signed the lease during the period where she reported to DHS that she was living alone with her four children in order to receive the benefits, the case states.

Benefit recipients are required by law to report the incomes of other adults living in the household when applying for benefits.
