A Nicholasville woman has been found guilty of filing a false bankruptcy in 2013 and defrauding the Social Security Administration for close to ten years.

A federal jury convicted 51-year-old Sheryl Bruner Thursday night for stealing government funds, money laundering and bankruptcy fraud, among other charges.

Evidence presented at the trial showed that Bruner claimed she was disabled and had no money from 2003 until 2013 in order to get income from the Supplemental Security Income program.

The findings also revealed that Bruner had not told the SSA that she was the owner of numerous companies which profited millions of dollars during that time.

Further evidence proved that in May 2013, Bruner filed for bankruptcy, even though her assets were valued at over $1 million.

Sentencing for money laundering could be up to 20 years for Bruner, along with up to ten additional years for theft of government money, and a maximum of five more years for each additional offense.
