On February 10, 54-year-old Sandy Sgrignoli was sentenced for theft of government funds after an investigation by the Social Security Administration beginning with her account being flagged by the SSA Carlisle district, said U.S. Attorney Martin Carlson for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

According to Carlson, Sgrignoli began receiving benefits from social security disability for herself and on behalf of her child, but she failed to notify authorities that the child was no longer in her care, therefore she was knowingly receiving benefits she was not entitled to. 

Sgrignoli pleaded guilty to the charge. She was sentenced to one year probation, including the first four months of house arrest, restitution of $13,008 to the SSA, and a special assessment of $25 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Smyser.
