RESTITUTION ORDERED IN WELFARE FRAUD

Heidi Jo Joyce, 23, of 9455 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls, who pleaded guilty Feb. 15 to first-degree offering a false instrument for filing in a welfare-fraud case, was ordered Wednesday in County Court to repay $7,292 to the Niagara County Social Services Department and was granted a conditional discharge.

Investigators said that Mrs. Joyce illegally received that amount in public aid between November 1992 and January 1994 because she failed to report that her spouse was employed and lived in her household at that time.
