Couple who faked being deaf to pocket terp money avoids jail time

A UK couple scammed thousands from the government for interpreters they never used. Tracy Holliday and Ian Johnston pretended to be deaf in paperwork they submitted requesting reimbursement for BSL interpreting services. The couple got caught--claimed they "didn't realize what they were doing was wrong" and this week they were sentenced--not to prison but to probation. The Daily Mail has details here.
