A judge in Beaumont has barred a woman from getting more tattoos or plastic surgery until she repays $15,000 to the government.

Tamraka McGriff in September pleaded guilty to theft of public money. McGriff, who was sentenced Wednesday, faced up to a year in prison.

Investigators said the case involved Social Security funds that McGriff no longer was eligible to get for her disabled son after he was enrolled in a state-funded residential program.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports McGriff also must do 240 hours of community service and cannot handle public money in her job as the Beaumont Independent School District's transportation coordinator. BISD spokeswoman Jessie Hays said McGriff is not allowed to sign purchase orders.

Further details on McGriff's tattoos and plastic surgery were not immediately available.
