HAMMOND | A woman is requesting to be acquitted after being found guilty in December by a federal court jury of making false statements regarding federal workers' compensation benefits.

Chopper Loughran, who worked as letter carrier for the Glen Park post office in Gary, claimed a work-related injury to her right foot in 2008, according to an indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Hammond.

The indictment claims Loughran submitted mileage reimbursement requests on dates she did not attend medical offices and submitted child care reimbursement requests for medical appointments on dates she did not visit the offices.

Loughran claims government evidence presented during the trial was insufficient to establish she was guilty.
