BRANSON, Mo. (News-Leader) — The Social Security Administration sent an investigator to a Branson show in November 2017.
The investigator sat in the audience at the Dream Theatre on Branson’s main drag and watched as James Craig played electric and acoustic guitar in a classic rock band.
During the two-hour show, the investigator noted that Craig displayed “physical dexterity” as he played music and mingled with the crowd.
The problem? Craig had been receiving monthly disability benefits for a decade.
On Wednesday, Craig pleaded guilty to a federal felony for stealing from the Social Security Administration.
