Nouel Alba of the Bronx set up a purported funeral fund to raise money for one of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December. She claimed 6-year-old Noah Pozner – one of 20 first graders killed in the mass shooting – was her nephew.
Nouel Alba, 37, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty in Bridgeport, Conn., to wire fraud and making false statements, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
A grand jury indicted Nouel Alba, 37, on scheme to defraud and identity theft charges, prosecutors said. Bail was set at $10,000 bond or $1,000 cash.
Members of New Jersey’s largest firefighter union will honor the memories of the 26 children and educators killed in the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School by building a playground in 26 communities impacted by superstorm Sandy.
Nouel Alba was arrested in December after she allegedly tried to swindle donors by posing as a relative of one of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Thirty-seven-year-old Nouel Alba was arrested Thursday and charged with lying to FBI agents.
The funerals for 6-year-old Noah Pozner and 6-year-old Jack Pinto were held Monday afternoon.
