A Florida man is serving 70 months in federal prison for stealing Social Security benefits.
Robert Butzlaff’s father went missing over 8 years ago. The incident was never reported to the Social Security Administration (SSA), which continued sending the man’s Social Security payments. His son collected them in a joint account, and used two debit cards to spend the money on personal expenses.
In addition to his prison sentence, he’s ordered to pay restitution on the $57,296 he acquired this way.
