Ohioan pleads guilty to theft charge for taking dead mom's Social Security checks for 33 years

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 3, 2014 9:26 AM EDT
DAYTON, Ohio


An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to a federal charge alleging he stole $230,000 in Social Security survivor benefits intended for his mother, who died 33 years ago.

The Dayton Daily News reports 71-year-old Frank Pospisil of Kettering entered his plea Wednesday to theft of government property.

Prosecutors alleged he got monthly Social Security checks meant for his mother from August 1981 until March of this year.

He'll be sentenced later. The possible punishments range from probation to prison and a $250,000 fine, as well as potential restitution.

A message was left Thursday for one of his attorneys. The other said he had no comment, except to question the newsworthiness of Pospisil's case.

The newspaper says the prosecutor handling the case was unavailable to comment.
