Jeannette Johnson gets six months, plus three years of probation.
A Nebraska woman with a felony record who used her son's Social Security number to get a job has been given six months in jail.
Jeannette Johnson, of Ashland, also was sentenced on Thursday tothree years of probation. The 38-year-old Johnson had pleaded nocontest to criminal impersonation.
Johnson was working as a Medicaid biller for a child mental health center in Lincoln. Police say that if she had used her own Social Security number on an application to get the job, a records check would have shown felony convictions for forgery and theft.
Authorities also say she checked "no'' on the application where it asked whether the applicant had been convicted of a felony.
