LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Lockport woman allegedly told the Labor Department she was unemployed while she was working at a restaurant in Texas. State Police say 37-year-old Judy A. McNew was arrested for receiving $9,006 in unemployment benefits she was not entitled to.
McNew is accused of making the false statements in 2011 and 2012. She was charged with three felonies: third-degree grand larceny, offer to file false instrument and falsify business records.
She will return to court next week.
