Madison Man to Prison for Defrauding VA with Daughter-in-Law

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) A Madison man is going to prison for 16 months for conspiring with his daughter-in-law to defraud the VA.

66-year-old David Watson, Senior, was also ordered Monday to pay more than $48,000 in restitution after appearing in federal court in Bangor.

He pleaded guilty last November.

Court records state Watson submitted documents to the VA on behalf of 25-year-old Lisa-Marie Watson.

The documents falsely claimed she'd suffered from mental disabilities connected to her Army service.

She pleaded guilty in January and is waiting to be sentenced.
