WENATCHEE — Five Chelan County social services clients face charges of welfare fraud in investigations that date back to 2009. Department of Social and Health Services investigator Paula Brantner-Thomas referred charges on all four defendants, now moving through the Chelan County Superior Court system. All face charges of first-degree theft for reportedly deceiving DSHS caseworkers; all but one are also charged with second-degree perjury, and all but two are charged with false verification for public assistance.
