Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — BUFFALO –– A Barker woman faces up to one year of prison for admitting to taking government funds.

U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced Tuesday Deborah Manning, 55, pleaded guilty to theft of government funds before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott. The charge carries a maximum penalty of a year in prison, a fine of $100,000 or both.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell T. Ippolito, Jr., who is handling the case, said Manning, a rural carrier associate for the United States Postal Service, collected unemployment insurance benefits to which she was not entitled. Between March 12, 2007 and May 13, Manning fraudulently applied for unemployment insurance benefits on 38 separate occasions.

She also failed to report income earned from the United States Postal Service in order to qualify for and receive unemployment insurance benefits. In total, Manning stole $8,992.75 in unemployment insurance benefits.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 20, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. before Judge Scott.
