JOHNSTOWN – An Osceola Mills woman has been sentenced in federal court in Johnstown to two years’ probation on her conviction of conversion of government funds, U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
U.S. District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Maryann Bowes-Dailey, 56, according to a press release issued by the U.S. Department of Justice. She’ll also have to pay restitution in the amount of $149,520.41 to the Social Security Administration.
Per court information, from June 1, 2001 through Feb. 28, 2013, Bowes-Dailey received and converted falsely to her own use a total of $149,520.41, which represents 416 separate Social Security Administration benefit payments made to her to which she was not entitled.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Maureen Sheehan-Balchon prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
Brady commended the Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General, for the investigation that led to the successful prosecution of Bowes-Dailey.
