ST. LOUIS (AP) - A woman has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison after federal prosecutors said she hid her mother’s death from the Social Security Administration for 20 years and kept $185,000 in retirement benefits.

Forty-six-year-old Mildred McClimans-Ratliff was sentenced Thursday. She had pleaded guilty in April to three felony counts of theft of government funds.

Prosecutors said McClimans-Ratliff began spending her mother’s Social Security benefits in November 1994.
