(KMOV.com) – According to federal authorities, a former Republican official in St. Charles County receives probation for disability fraud.

In June, Eugene Dokes claimed his disability prevented him from socializing and resulted in a lot of time playing video games and watching television.

But Dokes was apparently up to a few other activities he failed to mention while collecting a check funded with tax dollars. Dokes once led the St. Charles County Republican Committee. 

He is sentenced to five years probation for stealing more than $48,000 in disability checks.
