On September 11, Laticia Wilson, 34, of Kingston, was arrested by Ulster County Sheriff’s Department and charged with the felonies of:
- Welfare Fraud 4th degree
- Grand Larceny 4th degree
- Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the 1st degree
An investigation conducted by the Ulster County Department of Social Services Special Investigation Unit, in conjunction with the Office of the Ulster County District Attorney, alleges that from April 2019 to September 2019, Wilson was gainfully employed at a second job, which she did not disclose to the Department of Social Services, resulting in Wilson receiving $2,340 in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (also known as food stamps) she was not entitled to.
Wilson was processed and released with an appearance ticket for Ulster Town Court.
