Say What?!: Prison for Millionaire Who Collected Welfare
DEEPHAVEN, Minnesota – A Minnesota man who collected more than $167,000.00 in welfare benefits while he had more than $3 million in the bank was sentenced to 21 months in prison.
The court heard Colin Chisholm, 63, and his wife, Andrea, 54, collected more than $167,000.00 in medical and food assistance claims in the seven years leading up to March 2012 and investigators later discovered the couple had more than $3 million in the bank and lived in a $1.6 million mansion in Deephaven.
The couple, who once claimed to be Scottish nobility and went by the titles “Lord and Lady Chisholm,” were also found to own a luxury yacht worth millions on Lake Minnetonka.
