WEST LIBERTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Two people in Morgan County admitted they defrauded state and federal benefit programs.

66-year-old Kay Ratliff and 74-year-old Randall Dale Ratliff both of West Liberty pleaded guilty Monday in separate cases related to SSI fraud.

In their plea agreements, the pair admitted they fraudulently obtained benefits from the Social Security Administration and in some instances from the Medicaid program by concealing and intentionally failing to disclose their true living arrangements and financial resources.

They face up to seven years in federal prison.
