Former Chief Of Staff For IDPH Heading To Prison

(Springfield, IL) — A former chief of staff to the head of the state Department of Public Health is heading to prison. Quinshaunta Golden of Homewood was sentenced yesterday in federal court to eight years behind bars after pleading guilty in April of 2014 to multiple charges, including bribery and theft. Prosecutors say the 46-year-old issued millions of dollars in falsified grant money and contract funds in exchange for kickbacks. She is scheduled to report to prison in September.
