Orlando Woman Convicted Of Social Security And Medicaid Fraud

Orlando, Florida – A federal jury today found Sundardai Jadnauth (67, Orlando) guilty of two counts of theft of government property. She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 15, 2018. Jadnauth was indicted on October 26, 2016.

According to evidence presented at trial, Jadnauth received Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) and Medicaid benefits between 2011 and 2015, because she lied to the Social Security Administration. Jadnauth told the agency that she lived alone, had no assets, and earned no income. In fact, Jadnauth and her husband lived together in a house they had purchased for $67,000 in cash, in 2010.

This case was investigated by the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nathan   W. Hill.
