A woman charged with welfare fraud in connection to recent lottery winnings has pled no contest to the charges.
25 year-old Amanda Clayton failed to report her more than $500,000 lottery prize to the welfare office and continued collecting checks.
She'll pay nearly $6,000 in restitution as part of a plea agreement. That number is equal to the amount of welfare she received after winning the lottery. The state also dropped a second welfare fraud charge as part of the agreement.
Clayton will appear in court again July 24 for sentencing.
