In the time frame October 1, 2005 to December 31, 2005, Feaman used the the name, security number and credit worthiness of her mother to obtain a loan in the amount of $145,000, to purchase the residence at 117 E. St. Joseph Street.

Feaman, 39, presently residing in Ellis Grove, IL, pleaded guilty in November 2009 to one felony count of interstate transportation of stolen property and one felony count of identity theft. She appeared before United States District Judge Donald J. Stohr.
This case was investigated by the United States Secret Service, United States Postal Inspection Service, the Perryville and Ladue Police Departments; and Assistant United States Attorney James E. Crowe, Jr., who is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
