Man admits lying to Social Security



A Mascoutah man pleaded guilty today to a federal felony charge and admitted to a series of lies that cost Social Security over $120,000, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
John R. Laird applied for and received disability benefits in 1989, court documents show. During the time that Laird was telling the Social Security Administration that he was unable to lift or use his arms and had trouble getting around, he got a full-time job as a mechanic, pleaded guilty to methamphetamine-related charges in St. Clair County in 2001, violated his probation and was sent to prison, court documents show. He was supposed to notify officials about all those milestones, prosecutors said.

Laird pleaded guilty to concealment of material information from the Social Security Administration today and agreed to pay restitution. The U.S. attorney’s office said Laird would owe more than $120,000.
