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.
