Fairview Heights Woman Sentenced for Social Security Fraud

March 29, 2012

Delores Ann Holton, 60, of Fairview Heights, Illinois, was sentenced to five years’ probation for the felony of Concealment of Material Information from the Social Security Administration, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. The Defendant received a total of $55,467.50 in disability benefits to which she was not entitled. Holton accomplished this fraud on the Social Security Administration by using with various employers from 2002 through 2008 a different social security number than the social security number under which she received disability benefits. She had been confronted with her use of two social security numbers on February 14,1996, and had agreed in writing to use only the social security number under which her disability benefits were paid. The Court also ordered the defendant to pay full restitution to the United States and a $100 special assessment.

The case was investigated by agents of the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General. The prosecution was assigned to AUSA Michael Quinley.
