Collecting social security disability while at the same time working as a sports official does it seem to be a little inconsistent to you? From AP-
A Nevada boxing judge has been indicted in Las Vegas on a federal charge that he improperly collected about $250,000 in Social Security disability benefits.
U.S. Attorney Gregory Brower said in a statement Wednesday that 65-year-old Paul G. Smith worked more than 100 boxing matches from September 1994 and December 2005 and was involved in several other businesses inconsistent with his disability status.
A federal grand jury handed up a one-count indictment Tuesday charging Smith with Social Security fraud.
Brower says Smith received a summons to appear for arraignment June 12 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
I find it interesting they just issued a summons to Smith. Is there not enough jail cells in Clark County?
