Food stamp fraudster gets 34 months

A 54-year-old woman was sentenced to 34 months in prison Wednesday for three counts of wire fraud and nine counts of food-stamp fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Anh Thi Nguyen was also fined $200,000 and sentenced to three years of supervised release.

Nguyen was repeatedly captured on undercover video exchanging food stamps benefits for cash, authorities said. She was arrested in October 2010 and convicted in August 2011.
