7 days for former D.C. firefighter

A former D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services firefighter was sentenced to seven days in jail Wednesday for diverting $3,610 in payments for government CPR training services to herself.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Anthony C. Epstein also ordered Natalie Overton-Williams, 41, of Capitol Heights, to repay the funds she diverted between January and August 2008.

She was charged with a misdemeanor charge of first-degree fraud.

Prosecutors say Overton-Williams acknowledged obtaining the money from five organizations and one individual for the CPR classes.
