A Ross man who cashed his mother's Social Security checks for 39 years after her death will spend 18 months in prison, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

Chauncey Clinton, 65, pleaded guilty in September to the theft of government property for wrongfully receiving $304,853 in benefits.

U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak also sentenced him to two years of probation and ordered him to pay restitution to the Social Security Administration.
