LOUISVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56) — A well-known advocate for Kentucky veterans was indicted on fraud charges by a federal grand jury on Wednesday.

An unsealed indictment showed Jeremy Harrell is accused of wrongly collecting over $100,000 in unemployment benefits from Veteran Affairs over the span of four years.


Harrell, the founder and CEO of the non-profit “Veteran’s Club”, was ineligible to collect unemployment benefits from the VA due to his volunteer work, according to WDRB.

If convicted, Harrell faces up to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. He could also have to forfeit items he bought with the money.
