FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A federal judge has ordered a North Dakota woman to pay back more than $27,000 in Social Security benefits.

Susan Lakoduk pleaded guilty in May for failing to tell authorities she took a job that affected her ability to receive disability payments.

Authorities dropped a charge of theft of government funds in exchange for her plea.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson says Lakoduk must pay $27,456 in restitution and serve five years of probation.
