Michigan lottery winner charged with welfare fraud for using food stamps

The Michigan woman who continued to collect food stamps after winning a million dollars in the lottery has been arrested.

Amanda Clayton, who took home a $700,000 lump sum has been charged with welfare fraud.

Clayton told a television station last month, she thought it would be alright for her to continue using food stamps, because she didn't have a job.

She faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
