Lubbock woman admits theft of government property

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock woman pleaded guilty last week to theft of government property.  Court records say Theresa Richter, 52, legitimately accepted Social Security disability benefits from 1993 through 2007.  However, after the death of her mother, Richter did not report the $2,000 per month that her mother's estate left her. 

Court records say Richter accepted $27,636 in social security checks from March 2007 through December 2009 that she was not entitled to take.  She'll be sentenced at a later date to no more than 10 years in prison and a fine of not more than $250,000.
