Nebraska Woman Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison for $125,000 SSI Fraud

March 27, 2015

Office Affiliation: The Office of Investigations

From the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Nebraska:

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced LaTosha Bolton, age 48, of Omaha, Nebraska, to one year, three months imprisonment after a jury had previously found her guilty of theft of government property and mail fraud. Trial was held in October 2014. Ms. Bolton was also ordered to pay the Social Security Administration $124,960.90 and will serve a three-year term of supervised release after she completes her incarceration.

From 1993 until 2013 Ms. Bolton was receiving Supplemental Security Income benefits on behalf of one of her children. While it was clear the child did have a disability, by finding her guilty, the jury found that Ms. Bolton did not use the money for the benefit of her child as required by law. Ms. Bolton received $124,960.00 of government SSI funds and most of that money was sent through the United States mail.

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