Franklin woman facing up to 5 years in prison for social security fraud
CONCORD — Tonya Dailey, 44, of Franklin, pleaded guilty on Monday in United States District Court for Social Security Fraud.
Dailey started receiving Social Security disability benefits in 1999 and in June of 2010, Dailey returned to self-employment where she was earning sufficient income and was therefore not eligible to receive disability benefits.
Dailey did not record her income from her self-employment to the Social Security Association.
In May 2015, she admitted to concealing her self-employment because she knew her earnings would have disqualified her from receiving benefits.
Dailey received $30,230.78 in disability benefits that she would not have if she disclosed her actual income.
She is facing a maximum of five years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced on October 4.
