Government Assistance-Sentencing

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Authorities say a woman who collected more than $300,000 in government assistance has been sentenced to 51 months in prison.
During a hearing on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Ryskamp said the conduct of Gloria Valle-Clas is "about as low as it gets." He also ordered her to $283,359 in restitution.
Prosecutors say she and husband Alexander Gonzalez were living the life of luxury on a one-acre, manicured lot in Loxahatchee. They had a swimming pool, a Mercedes, a boat and a greenhouse -- all while collecting between $305,000 and $377,000 in food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid benefits. Records show she used two Social Security numbers.
The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/1lVluej ) reports Gonzalez played a minor role in the schemes and was sentenced to 364 days in prison.
