The Kentucky News-Enterprise has a piece this week on jailed Wisconsin veteran, Keith Roberts.
Sister takes up brother’s fight for freedom
By JOSHUA COFFMAN
RADCLIFF —Sally Harrod is crunching numbers that stretch beyond her job as an accountant. She oversees a legal fund for her brother in two legal cases regarding benefits he sought as a Navy veteran.
Keith Roberts, 60, is in a Minnesota federal prison, convicted of fraudulently receiving electronic funds from the department of Veterans Affairs. ...
Harrod, her family members and other veterans’ advocates ... fear the VA sought retribution against Roberts for seeking decades of back pay for post-traumatic stress disorder and criticizing the agency’s slow response to approve or deny his medical claims. ...
And, once it is all settled, she hopes her family can help veterans in similar situations.
“It’s unbelievable to all of them,” she said. “If they can do it to my brother, they can do it to anyone at any time.”
