An Erie woman is heading to prison after being convicted of stealing her deceased father’s Social Security benefits.

Loraleigh Barber, 51, was sentenced on July 20 to one year behind bars. Barber was also ordered to pay more than $100,000 in restitution.

According to the Department of Justice, from 2007 to 2019, Barber received $127,636 in Old Age, Survivor’s Disability Insurance benefits from the United States Social Security Administration.

Barber served as a representative payee for her father, but after his death in 2006 she never informed the government and kept receiving and spending the benefits.
