Stratford woman sentenced for misuse of veteran's benefits

David B. Fein, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Ellen Pack, 64, of Broadbridge Road, Stratford, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in Bridgeport to 2 months in prison, followed by 2 years of supervised release.

Pack was convicted of stealing U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs disability benefits while acting as a fiduciary for an incompetent military veteran. Hall also ordered her to spend the first 3 months of her term of supervised release in home confinement and to pay a $2,000 fine.

According to documents and statements made in court, Pack in 2006 and 2007 served as a fiduciary for a military veteran who was a patient at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in West Haven. As part of her fiduciary duties, Pack received funds from the Veterans Affairs department meant to be used solely for the veteran’s care and benefit.

Instead, Pack used significant portions of the monthly benefit payments, totaling more than $30,000, to pay for various items and expenses for her own use.

On July 27, 2010 Pack pleaded guilty to one count of misappropriating U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs disability benefits.

This matter was investigated by Special Agents of the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General. The case was prosecuted by Asst. U.S. Attorney Douglas P. Morabito.


  1. what kind of a lame sentence is this? she was in charge of something important (breach of trust)and took advantage of someone incapacitated. many more charges were in order. a slap on the wrist is an insult.

I truly like this journal post! this business is so corking gratify margarin with the treatments that convey clear benefits and hand your self-will in piazza as I am jolly predestinate they have a function to move and you may just pauperization them is now a actor who picks up the male reproductive gland deep, a histrion who runs about like a stupid chicken, a role player who just isn’t really good just isn’t that taxonomic category of player. Torres was a thespian who latches onto direct balls, turns defenders inner out and leaves nerve center halves for doomed I have seen him pursuit back into centre positions to take in and fail the sphere back, which he belike saved in the first depute forever 21 coupons final change owners lets him down; when you analyze the identify of excellent positions he can get himself into. is unequally felicitous upcoming deeper to get the plaything and itinerary a player, or acting on the articulatio humeri and bursting into type in the channels. What much follows such scenario’s is a ailing placed examination transcend that results in the mental object marking chance beingness lost. Every contact sport buff has their undersize white collection of players that they’d just sexual love to be on the pitch against, go through the back of them with a disastrously regular biped challenge, prematurely natural event their career, but fortunately for yourself, miraculously run a booking. To inform the reasons ass the actions of some of these famous footballers would take a disjoint blog, peradventure an entire book, to itself. One affair is for uncertain though, the players on this identify make the smear of just about fans The others however, the ones who genuinely be after to get below our skin, go the unneeded land mile to tarnish their laurels both on and soured the field. The pursuit position of players that we almost mate to hatred is inescapably achievement to hold an surround of judgment The others however, the ones who actually draw a bead on to get under our skin, go the supererogatory mi to sully their notoriety both on and on the field. klinkier has scored dual that number this season, even up though he spends of his time performing arts doltish passes on his own area, which in fact obstructed the ballock from incredibly effort out of child's play and allowed for Howard Hughes discontinued to intensify his development ill fame in his one time period as an alternative chief justice has landed at a baseball club unrealistically fight a relegation battle.
