LUBBOCK, Texas -

The federal grand jury indicts a suspect for embezzling from the state.

Josefina Ramirez formally charged with theft of public money from the Texas Work-Force Commission, classified as a portion of the U.S. Department of Labor and the Social Security Administration.

Court documents indicate she qualified her family and friends to receive unemployment benefits for seven years,  about $110,000, when they weren't entitled to them.

The U.S. Attorney's Office claims she used false and fraudulent claims to justify the benefits, knowing they were lies.
