United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Perhamn, Minnesota woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Pay Legal Child Support.

Jessica L. Voss, age 28, was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 10, 2012 for failing to pay over $19,085.00 in past due child support. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes on March 19, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is two years imprisonment; a $250,000.00 fine; one year supervised release; one additional year upon revocation; a $100.00 assessment fee; and child support restitution amount owing at the time of sentencing. The charge is merely an accusation and Voss is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Voss was released on bond pending trial, which has been set for May 21, 2013.
