Clearfield County Man Sentenced to Prison for Defrauding Social Security

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - A resident of Morrisdale, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to six months in prison, followed by six months’ home detention with electronic monitoring, and three years’ supervised release, on his conviction of conversion of government funds, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Glenn Allen English, 58, of Morrisdale, Pa.

According to information presented to the court, from Jan. 1, 2008, to Oct. 31, 2015, English did receive and convert falsely to his own use a total of $210,802.30, which represents approximately 210 separate Social Security Administration benefit payments made to him to which he was not entitled.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie L. Haines prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Ms. Song commended the Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General, for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of English.
