Ill. woman gets probation in Social Security theft

BENTON, Ill. (AP) — A southern Illinois woman has been sentenced to five years of probation for her admitted theft of more than $85,000 in Social Security benefits she now must repay.

Fifty-one-year-old Mary Barnett-Johnson of Mount Vernon pleaded guilty in February in U.S. District Court in Benton to one count of theft of government funds.

A grand jury indicted her last December, alleging that after her mother’s 2003 death Barnett-Johnson fraudulently continued to receive and use the dead woman’s Social Security benefits.

The theft took place between August 2003 and September 2011.
