Willard Woman Charged With Social Security Fraud

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that an information was filed against Diana Ousley, age 57, of Willard, Ohio.

The charge relates to Social Security Fraud beginning on or about May 2004 and continuing to November 2012. She is accused of fraudulently receiving $64,414.

If convicted, defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Office of Inspector General Social Security Administration.

The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Angelita Cruz Bridges.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The burden of proof is always on the government to prove a defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
