Federal prosecutors have charged a York woman with Social Security fraud.
Julie Smith, 38, allegedly concealed and failed to disclose income earned from May 2009 through June 2011 from employers, and failed to disclose that full custody of her children was granted to her children's father in August 2003, according to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith.
Smith allegedly received benefit payments of approximately $69,243 to which she knew she was not entitled, Smith said.
Smith said prosecutors filed a plea agreement in the case which is subject to approval by the court.
If convicted, she faces a term of imprisonment of up to five years and fines up to $250,000.
