KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas woman has pleaded guilty to receiving more than $45,000 in federal aid she wasn't entitled to.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a release Tuesday that 48-year-old Jody Gayle Simmons of Arma has pleaded guilty to one count of theft of government funds. In her plea, she admitted to fraudulently receiving about $45,000 in aid from various federal programs.

She also admitted that she falsely reported that her husband moved out of their home so his income would not disqualify her from receiving federal assistance.

Simmons faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she's sentenced Nov. 6. .
