Unpaid work for benefit cheat
A WOMAN who told lies to get more than £5,000 in benefits has been ordered to do unpaid work.
Sharon Kaymaz, 47, did not tell the authorities she had capital in excess of the required amount, Plymouth Crown Court was told.
Kaymaz pocketed £5,250 in income support to which she was not entitled. She admitted two counts of dishonestly making a false representation to gain benefit between 2005 and 2006.
Kaymaz, of Segrave Road, Milehouse failed to declare the true extent of her capital.

Judge David Ticehurst handed her a 12-month community order with 100 hours of unpaid work. Prosecutors have also started legal action through the court to seize assets to repay the debt under the Proceeds of Crime Act. Kaymaz had earlier denied two similar offences relating to alleged false claims for housing benefit and council tax benefit. Those matters were allowed to lie on file.
