Elderly Kimball woman sentenced for social security fraudTell North Platte what you think
 

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced Monday that Lois Powell, 74, of Kimball was sentenced for defrauding the Social Security Administration.

Since 1998, Powell received benefits that belonged to a deceased friend. Powell had been added as a signor to the account of a friend, and when the friend passed away, Powell continued to receive checks, totaling $177,675. She converted the money to her personal use, Gilg said.

Powell, who plead guilty to theft of government property, will pay restitution of $177,675 and serve five years of supervised probation.

The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon handed down the sentence.

The case was investigated by the Office of Inspector General, Social Security.
