Glenwood woman sentence for Social Security fraud

A Glenwood woman was sentenced today for stealing money from the Social Security Administration. A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 61-year-old Marlene Lucille Moore to six months in prison and six months home confinement for her guilty plea in July to stealing nearly $165,000 in Social Security benefits.

An investigation found Moore began taking money from a bank account in 2001 set up for a Social Security recipient who had died that same year. Moore was ordered to pay back the $164,852 dollars she took from the account, and will have to serve three years of parole.
