Alabama Farmer Accused of Stealing $919K in Crop Insurance Money

An Alabama farmer has been charged with stealing crop insurance money and federal prosecutors want him to repay more than $919,000.

The Dothan Eagle reports Dexter Day Gilbert was charged Thursday in U.S. District Court with illegally receiving funds from the federal Agriculture Department’s insurance program to compensate farmers for crop losses caused by natural disasters. Court records say Gilbert received payments to which he wasn’t entitled between February 2016 and January 2017.

A plea hearing in the case has been scheduled for June 11.
