ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- A West Point man has pleaded guilty to receiving unemployment benefits while he was working at a Lowndes County manufacturing plant.

A federal indictment accused John L. White, 45, of receiving nearly $11,000 from American Reinvestment and Recovery Act and Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program.

Federal prosecutors say White made false representations to the Misssissippi Department of Employment Security about his employment situation when he was in fact receiving insurance benefits and earning wages from Omnova Industries.

White entered a guilty plea during a hearing Thursday morning in U. S. District Court in Aberdeen.

He will be sentenced at a later date.
