SD Woman Sentenced for Defrauding Federal Government

Judge's Gavel

 

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A South Dakota woman convicted of defrauding the federal government has been sentenced to a year of probation and $7,400 in restitution.
Forty-year-old Jana Harford, of Redfield, was convicted in federal court last October on charges of theft of government funds and misuse of benefits by a representative payee, which is a person who manages money for someone else who is unable to do so.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Harford misused money from a Social Security program between December 2010 and June 2011.
