Three Columbus Residents Charged With Defrauding Social Security

Eight Ohioans, including three from Columbus, are facing Social Security fraud charges.

Federal prosecutors say the defendants illegally collected nearly 800 thousand dollars in benefits paid to a deceased relative or friend in seven of the eight cases. In one case, the defendant stole the identity of a living doctor and used it to collect the doctor’s benefits. The Columbus residents charged are 71-year-old Jesse Larry, 25-year-old Chucky Scott and 42-year-old Era Jenkinson.
