(KSL News) A Highland man could face federal prison time for collecting his father's retirement benefits more than a decade after he died.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports David Barry Hendrickson faces a charge of theft of government funds for not reporting his father's death in 1995 and allowing more than $600,000 in overpayments to be directly deposited into a bank account he controlled.

The payments were stopped in 2006 when the U.S. Office of Personnel Management discovered the elder Henderson had died.
