PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Belle Fourche woman convicted of defrauding federal government programs has been sentenced to nearly a year in prison.

Authorities say 49-year-old Cindy Geib stole more than $112,000 in money and benefits from federal Social Security, Medicaid, food stamp and heating aid programs for herself and her four children between 2011 and 2017.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Geib was recently sentenced on federal theft and fraud counts to 10 months in prison and restitution.
