COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A 51-year-old southwest Iowa woman has been sentenced to prison for lying to the Social Security Administration.
Federal prosecutors say Sharon Manchester, of Farragut, on Tuesday was sentenced to a year and a day, to be followed by three years of supervised release. Manchester pleaded guilty in February to committing Social Security fraud from October 2008 to July 2013.
She also was ordered to pay restitution of nearly $49.000.
Prosecutors say Sharon Manchester lied to Social Security when she said she wasn't receiving any financial support from her husband, co-defendant Andrew Manchester. He has pleaded guilty to possession of a false document and is awaiting sentencing.
