A Brooklyn couple is accused of stealing over $100,000 in food stamps and Medicaid benefits.
The district attorney says Rivka and Avraham Baror enjoyed luxury cars and fancy restaurants all while fraudulently collecting more than $108,000 over a more than six-year period.
Officials say the couple used aliases to hide their assets, all while receiving assistance meant to help needy city residents.
They both face up to 15 years in prison if convicted of welfare fraud.
