Prosecutors say an East Tennessee woman used a dead relative's identity to steal social security benefits for nearly three decades.

Judy Dinsmore of Rogersville pleaded guilty to charges on Monday. She's sentenced to more than two years in prison, and is ordered to pay back more than $165,000.

And there's a twist-- in 2004, Dinsmore was sentenced to five months in federal prison for a similar scheme involving a different deceased relative.
