WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- One Kansas man has been sentenced to prison and a second has received three years' probation in separate cases of Social Security fraud.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 54-year-old L.T. Baker, of Wichita, and 40-year-old Paul David Lieder, of Hillsboro, were both sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Wichita. Both had pleaded guilty to lying to the Social Security Administration to improperly receive disability payments.

Besides receiving a one-year prison sentence, Baker was also ordered to repay the more than $66,000 he received in disability benefits. Baker admitted using a slightly altered Social Security number to claim he was disabled despite being gainfully employed since 2000.

Lieder must repay $24,000 he received in disability benefits by using his father's Social Security number to hide the fact that he was working.
