BEAUMONT, Texas - A judge in Beaumont has barred a woman from getting more tattoos or plastic surgery until she repays $15,000 to the government.

Tamraka McGriff in September pleaded guilty to theft of public money. McGriff, who was sentenced Wednesday, faced up to a year in prison.

Investigators say the case involved Social Security funds that McGriff no longer was eligible to get for her disabled son after he was enrolled in a state-funded residential program.

Judge: No More Plastic Surgery or Tattoos

How about doing some checking on this recipient from time to time before the money gets that much and just....I don't know....cut her off?
