DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport man has been sentenced to 15 months in federal prison after prosecutors say he continued to receive disability benefits while he was serving prison time in an unrelated case.

The Quad-City Times (https://bit.ly/1KnasvP ) reports 67-year-old James Clayton Bailey was also sentenced Friday to three years of supervised release once he is released from prison. Prosecutors say Bailey began receiving Social Security Disability benefits in 2003.

Bailey was sentenced on Oct. 29, 2009, to up to 10 years in prison on a third-degree sexual abuse charge in Clinton County.

Prosecutors say Bailey failed to notify the Social Security Administration that he was incarcerated and continued to receive payments, knowing he was not qualified to receive such benefits.

He was ordered to pay the administration over $52,000.
