Wis. Court: Day Care Owner Gets Revocation Hearing

Posted Thursday, January 10, 2013 --- 11:13 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Supreme Court has ordered a hearing for a Milwaukee day care owner who lost her license under a law designed to crack down on child care fraud.

The Department of Children and Families revoked Angelia Jamerson's license in 2010. The agency in part cited a law that prohibits anyone convicted of defrauding public assistance programs from holding a child care license. Jamerson had been convicted nearly 20 years earlier of failing to report income that would make her ineligible for public assistance.

Jamerson requested a hearing but an administrative law judge concluded such a proceeding would be moot.

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday it's unclear whether Jamerson engaged in deliberate fraud.

A spokeswoman for the state Justice Department, which is representing DCF, didn't immediately return a message.
