From the Dallas Morning News:
A former Social Security Administration employee was sentenced Friday to 21 months in federal prison for accessing the agency’s electronic databases to steal government money, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
Carwin Shaw, 33, of Arlington, was also ordered to pay $78,165 in restitution for his role in the scheme. ...
He also caused unauthorized payments to be issued and to have duplicate payments issued for his conspirators. Shaw had more checks sent to his accomplices by reporting that their initial checks were lost or stolen. He then split the money with them, authorities said.
