A York man who illegally received nearly $3,000 in welfare benefits must pay restitution and serve 50 hours of community service for his crime, according to the state Office of Inspector General.

Justin J. Billet, 32, was one of 22 people across the state who either pleaded guilty or were sentenced in August for welfare fraud.

In addition to performing community service and paying restitution, Billet must spend four years on probation and is disqualified from receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits for one year, according to the inspector general's office.
