Convenience store owner pleads guilty in FoodShare scheme

Mavi Kuldip Singh, 65, the owner of a Williamson Street gas station and convenience store, pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges and was permanently barred from accepting public assistance FoodShare cards at his business, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The charges included unauthorized use of a public assistance voucher and two counts of knowingly trafficking food stamps after Singh illegally bought balances of FoodShare cards from cardholders seeking quick cash. Singh was sentenced to two years of probation and was ordered to serve a 90-day suspended jail sentence for each count should his probation be revoked.
