KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A 50-year-old Wellington woman has been sentenced six months in prison and ordered to pay more than $86,000 in restitution for fraudulently collecting Social Security benefits.
U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said Amy McLain was sentenced Friday for one count of Social Security fraud. She pleaded guilty to receiving Social Security benefits while working from 2008 to 2014 at Kreifels Communications. She fraudulently reported to Social Security that she was not working and had no income.
A co-defendant, 58-year-old Scott Kreifels, of Wellington, was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay more than $49,900 in restitution. McLain's husband, 49-year-old Jeffrey McLain, also of Wellington, will be sentenced Nov. 1.
