LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada boxing judge has been indicted in Las Vegas on a federal charge that he improperly collected about $250,000 in Social Security disability benefits.

U.S. Attorney Gregory Brower said in a statement Wednesday that 65-year-old Paul G. Smith refereed more than 100 boxing matches from September 1994 and December 2005 and was involved in several other businesses inconsistent with his disability status.

A federal grand jury handed up a one-count indictment Tuesday charging Smith with Social Security fraud.

Brower says Smith received a summons to appear for arraignment June 12 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if he is convicted.
