A Maine woman is facing time behind bars after she claimed to be pregnant for more than three years.  According to the “Morning Sentinel,” Leah Wright is accused of illegally obtaining food stamps by forging state documents to say she was pregnant over a 40-month period.  The 34-year-old allegedly received as much as ten-thousand-dollars from the Department of Health and Human Services from September 2006 to February 2010.  She is also accused of receiving four-thousand-dollars in food stamp benefits.  Last Thursday, Wright was indicted by a grand jury on one count of theft by deception and eight counts of aggravated forgery.  She is due back in Kennebec County Superior Court on Tuesday to be arraigned.
