Louisiana woman pleads guilty to stealing federal benefits

MONROE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana woman has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $40,000 in Social Security Administration benefits.

U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook says 40-year-old Katie Marie Day, of Bastrop, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen L. Hayes to one count of theft of government property. Hook, in a news release Monday, said the plea will become final when accepted by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr.

Hook says Day applied for disability benefits, claiming she was separated. After her husband died in 2016, she told the SSA that she had in fact been living with him off and on since their marriage. That caused the agency to overpay Day $40,569.

Day faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is set for June 13.
