A Blair woman accused of fraudulently obtaining about $9,000 in government assistance in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP) and child care benefits accepted a plea agreement April 9 in Washington County District Court.
Sheena R. Grogan (formerly Scott), 30, pleaded no contest to attempted fraud to obtain assistance, a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Chief Deputy County Attorney Erik Petersen said the state would not object to probation. Scott could face up to a year in jail, and up to a $1,000 fine.
Petersen said Grogan had already paid $6,700 in restitution and the state would be seeking $2,300 more in restitution.
Judge John E. Samson ordered a presentence investigation. Sentencing is set for May 28.
According to a complaint, Grogan obtained the benefits between May 2013 and September 2015. It's alleged she received $2,199 from SNAP and $6,804 from child care benefits.
