A Jamestown woman has been charged with illegally obtaining more than $23,000 in welfare benefits since September 1996 by not reporting her full income.

Laurie A. Cox, 32, of Chautauqua Avenue, was charged Tuesday with six felony counts of offering a false instrument, one count of misuse of food stamps and one count of welfare fraud.

She was issued an appearance ticket for Jamestown City Court on Feb. 1.
