U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania issued the following announcement on Sept. 11.
A former resident of Erie, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 21 months in jail and ordered to make $1,739,676.71 in restitution on his conviction of conspiracy to defraud the United States, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced.
United States District Judge David S. Cercone imposed the sentence on Nureden Jibul, 34.
Nureden Jibul and two co-defendants were all engaged in food stamp fraud primarily involving exchanging food stamps for cash. Nureden also enlisted another co-defendant to submit a fraudulent application for a food stamp license so that the food stamp terminals in use at the convenience stores owned and operated by Nuerden Jibul and a co-defendant would not be in their names. Nureden and his co-defendants then used the food stamp terminals at locations where they were not authorized.
