Oklahoma City – ANTIGANEE TRIPLET, 39, from Oklahoma City, has been sentenced by United States District Judge Robin J.

This case was the result of an investigation conducted by the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Maxfield Green.
