ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A 56-year-old man has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for illegal taking more than $125,000 in Social Security benefits.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley, in a news release, says Glen Williams, of Lecompte, Louisiana, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell on one count of theft of government property. Drell also ordered him to pay $125,456 in restitution.

According to evidence presented at the May 20 guilty plea, Williams applied for and received Social Security Income based on a disability beginning in November 1995. However, Williams also received disability payments from his employer which he did not disclose as required. The private disability income made Williams ineligible for the SSI he was paid from 1995 through 2014.
