ONEIDA — A Madison County woman is accused of illegally receiving more than $2,000 in welfare benefits.

Sheriff’s deputies said Erin E. Chesebro, 34, of Oneida, received $2,100 in public assistance between February and September 2016 even though she was receiving other income. Deputies said Chesebro was required to report all earned income during that period, but failed to do so.

Chesebro is charged with one count each of fourth-degree welfare fraud and fourth-degree grand larceny, both class E felonies, deputies stated.

She is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 24.
