A man from Cutler faces up to ten years in prison for taking veteran disability benefits that he wasnt supposed to receive.
38 year old Richard Ramsdell junior pleaded guilty this week to charges that he received more than 200 thousand dollars.
Authorities say he claimed to be unemployed and unable to work because of physical and mental health problems.
They say they discovered he had been working as a fisherman and doing other jobs while still receiving the benefits.
Ramsdell could also be ordered to repay the money when he's sentenced.
