A Nebraska man will spend a year in federal prison for using his brother's Social Security number while collecting $189,401 in disability and welfare benefits.

U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says 53-year-old Mickey Lee Tucker
was sentenced Friday for identity theft.

Prosecutors say the Valley man was also ordered to repay the
benefits he collected improperly on his own Social Security number
while using his brother's identity.
