CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia woman who pleaded guilty to theft has been ordered to pay more than $54,000 to the Social Security Administration.

U.S. Attorney Bill Powell’s office said in a news release that 57-year-old Anne Louise Hall of St. Marys pleaded guilty to theft of government money in October and admitted collecting Social Security benefits under false pretenses over a 10-year period.

The release said Hall was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to pay $54,678.90 in restitution.
