Fremont Builder Sentenced for Theft of Government Services

Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced today that on January 25, 2018, Chief United States District Court Judge Robert Rossiter sentenced Brian Tillman, age 54, of Fremont, Nebraska for his conviction for theft of government funds. Tillman was sentenced to a five-year term of probation and was ordered to pay restitution of $190,100 to the Social Security Administration.


During the period from March 2010 to December 2016, the Defendant received approximately $190,110 of unentitled Social Security Disability Insurance benefits for himself and his two minor children. During that time, Defendant was concealing his full-time employment doing business as Brian Home Improvements in Fremont, Nebraska. Had the Social Security Administration known of such full-time employment, Tillman would not have received disability benefits.  As a result of the Defendant’s fraud, the Social Security Administration suffered a loss of $190,110.


This case was investigated by the Social Security Administration’s Office of Inspector General.
