Man defrauds SSA of $41,805

A Louisiana man is facing 10 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to stealing government money.

In 2002, the man began to earn disability checks from the Social Security Administration, SSA. He was told by the administration that once he was able to work again, he needed to inform them. He chose to ignore that advice, and continued receiving the checks for an additional four years after he returned to the workforce.

Over those four years the man accepted roughly $41,805 of government money that he was technically not entitled to. He could face a fine of $250,000, or a 10-year sentence in prison, or both. His sentencing will determine his overall verdict for his conviction.
