Gettysburg Man Charged With Theft Of Social Security Benefits
Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Office Affiliation: The Office of InvestigationsFrom the U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Pennsylvania:
HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Jeffrey Dixon, age 53, of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was indicted on September 30, 2020, by a federal grand jury for theft of Social Security benefits totaling more than $30,000 over a two-year period.
This case was investigated by the Social Security Administration’s Office of Inspector General.  Prosecution is assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Christian T. Haugsby.
Indictments are only allegations. All persons charged by indictment are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
If convicted of the charge, Dixon faces a maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine of $250,000.  Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is required to consider and weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense; the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the public and provide for the defendant's educational, vocational and medical needs. For these reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the potential sentence for a specific defendant.
