BANGOR – An Orono woman will spend five years on probation after pleading guilty to social security fraud.
Amanda Harding, 33, has also been ordered to repay more than $26,000.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Harding began receiving social security benefits in 2006.
The problems began when she failed to notify administrators she married a Canadian citizen and moved to Canada for several years.
She later admitted she knew her benefits would have been reduced if she had told officials about her change of status.
