El Salvadoran Sentenced for Social Security Fraud
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Oscar Armando Amaya, 20, of El Salvador, was sentenced in Omaha today by United States District Judge John M. Gerrard, to serve four and a half months in prison, for Social Security fraud, in violation of federal law. In addition to his prison term, he will serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison.
On August 3, 2012, Homeland Security Investigators encountered Oscar Amaya, whom they believed to be an MS 13 gang member, working at the Asian Market, 321 North 76th Street, in Omaha. They determined he was illegally present in the USA and was working under someone else’s Permanent Resident Alien number and an unassigned Social Security Number.
This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations.
