Kalispell woman pleads guilty to food stamp fraud

   MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A 38-year-old Kalispell woman has pleaded guilty to
repeatedly defrauding federal programs designed to aid low-income families.
   The U.S. Attorney's Office says Wendy Renee Houser-Bond pleaded guilty on
Dec. 6 to theft of federal property by fraud after receiving nearly $41,000 in food
stamps and other benefits to which she was not entitled. U.S. District Judge
Donald Molloy of Missoula scheduled sentencing for March 20.
   Prosecutors say Houser-Bond underreported her family's income from September
2002 through December 2008 and obtained more than $29,000 in food aid to which
she was not entitled.
   Court records say she and her family illegally collected more than $10,000 in
welfare benefits in Washington state from September 2010 through May 2011
and another $1,700 in Montana from June 2011 until May 2012.
