A Central Nyack man has been indicted by a Rockland County grand jury in New City on welfare fraud charges.
Samuel Sisco, 28, of 32 Highview Court, Central Nyack, is accused of falsifying information about his residency, leading to Sisco receiving $5,992 worth of public assistance for which he was not entitled, according to Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe.
Sisco has been indicted on chargs of third-degree welfare fraud and first-degree offering a false instrument for filing.
Zugibe said that from April 2011 to June 2012 Sisco received Medicaid Assistance, Public Assistance and Food Stamps after lying about his residence. Sisco is accused of reporting that he was not living with his son and that his son received benefits at another location, Sisco's mother’s home.
However, Zugibe said Sisco, his son and Sisco's mother all lived in the same home.
