A Northwood, N.D., woman was sentenced Thursday for defrauding Grand Forks County Social Services of nearly $39,000.

Sarah Beth Nordling, 32, will not do jail time, but must pay $32,601.88 in restitution.


A court affidavit said in February, a social services worker received a tip that Sarah's husband, Adam Nordling, had been receiving worker's compensation payments for a number of years that weren't reported when she filed for assistance.
