A Valley, Nebraska man was sentenced Friday to one year and one day in federal prison for identity theft and Social Security fraud. Fifty-three year old Mickey Lee Tucker used his brother’s Social Security Number to gain employment while collecting benefits using his own Social Security number.

However, since 1998, Tucker used his own number to collect $116,284.30 worth of disability benefits and $73,117.58 worth of state Health & Human Services welfare benefits.

U.S. District Judge Joseph F. Bataillon also ordered Tucker to pay $189,401.88 in restitution.
