 FLORIDA RESIDENT PLEADS GUILTY TO CONCEALING SOCIAL SECURITY
 BENEFITS OF DECEASED MOTHER
 BOSTON, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A Florida resident pleaded guilty yesterday to concealing social security benefits.
 U.S. Attorney Wayne A. Budd today announced that Edward Moineau, 58, of 11944 Sugar Tree Drive, Tampa, Fla., entered a plea of guilty to a one-count felony information charging concealment of Social Security benefits between January 1983 and June 1988.
 At the guilty plea hearing, a federal prosecutor stated that the government was prepared to offer evidence that Edward Moineau knowingly received and used Social Security benefits sent to his deceased mother, causing over the years an overpayment by the Department of Health and Human Services of $34,004.
 Moineau faces a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000, or both. Sentencing before U.S. District Judge Robert Keeton has been scheduled for May 28, 1992.
 The case was investigated by Special Agents of the Department of Health and Human Services and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen A. Higginson of Budd's Major Crimes Division.
