Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Mark
Judd, 34, was sentenced today in United States District Court by Judge George Z. Singal to 4 years
in prison and 3 years of supervised release for theft of federal funds, social security fraud, making
false statements to a financial institution and aggravated identity theft. Judd was also ordered to pay
over $29,000 in restitution to the victims of his offenses. Judd pled guilty to the charges on January
16, 2013.

Court records reveal that between 2004 and 2011, Judd regularly used social security
numbers that were not assigned to him to open lines of credit at various financial
institutions. Between 2010 and 2012, Judd used the social security number of his minor child in
connection with employment applications. He then failed to report wages earned under his child’s
social security number to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in connection with his receipt of welfare and
housing benefits. As a result, Judd illegally received those federally funded benefits.

This case was investigated by Offices of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health
and the USDA, the Social Security Administration, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s
Homeland Security Investigations and MDHHS.
