The Michigan woman who continued collecting food stamps after she won a $1 million dollar lottery prize plead not guilty to fraud charges on Tuesday.
Amanda Clayton was arrested on Monday. If she is convicted she could face up to four years in prison, according to WJBY Detriot.
In March, Clayton was confronted by a reporter on air and about why she was still collecting food stamps and said, “I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn’t, I thought maybe it was okay because I’m not working.”
When asked if she thought she had a right to the money, Clayton said, “I mean I kinda do.”
