Anita Belaire pleaded guilty to theft of public money for filing a false application with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

A federal indictment says that after Hurricane Rita, Belaire falsely submitted an application to The Road Home disaster relief program and received $55,500.

The application requires people to list their primary residence and detail the extent of its damages.

Belaire listed a home that she owned but that had been condemned since before the 2005 storm.

She could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and be fined up to $250,000.
