PITCHER – A Pitcher woman pleaded guilty inside the U.S. District Court in Syracuse Tuesday for failing to report her goat-selling business while she fraudulently collected more than $60,000 in workers compensation benefits.

U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian announced yesterday that 53-year-old Susan Tansosch of Horton Road, Pitcher, pleaded guilty to defrauding the U.S. Department of Labor and the United States Postal Service in excess of $60,362 by making false statements and representations to obtain the federal benefits.

Hartunian’s office reported that Tansosch was facing a maximum sentence of 5 years in federal prison and up to $250,000 in fines.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Inspector General.
