(GULFPORT, Miss.) Court records say a Mississippi woman has pleaded not guilty to lying about living with her husband and her husband's income to collect more Social Security and Medicaid benefits than she was due.
Betty Aline Smith pleaded not guilty in November in U.S. District Court in Gulfport. A court filing Tuesday says she intends to change her plea.
The indictment in the case says she concealed the information from 2003 to 2008 in Pearl River County.
The court record says she received $22,814 more than she should have in Social Security payments. She allegedly received more than $9,600 in medical benefits than she wasn't owed.
