November 13, 2013

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA - On November 12, 2013, Marlene Lucille Moore, a 61 year-old resident of Glenwood, Iowa, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge John Jarvey to six months in prison followed by six months of home confinement for theft of funds from the Social Security Administration, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Judge Jarvey also ordered Moore to serve three years of supervised release when she completes her imprisonment, and ordered Moore to pay restitution to the Social Security Administration in the amount of $164,852.

On July 3, 2013, Moore pled guilty to theft of funds of the United States. The charge was the result of an investigation into the payment of funds by the Social Security Administration to a bank account set up to receive funds for an eligible recipient. The Social Security Administration had learned that the recipient had died in 2001. The investigation revealed that Moore removed money from the account from 2001 until August of 2012, taking $164,852 from the account without authority.

The investigation was conducted by the Social Security Administration-Office of the Inspector General, and the case was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
