Redfield woman sentenced for defrauding fed government

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota woman convicted of defrauding the federal government has been sentenced to a year of probation and $7,400 in restitution.

Forty-year-old Jana Harford, of Redfield, was convicted in federal court last October on charges of theft of government funds and misuse of benefits by a representative payee, which is a person who manages money for someone else who is unable to do so.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Harford misused money from a Social Security program between December 2010 and June 2011.
