Norma Coronel, 40, pleaded guilty Sept. 2 to three felony charges of fraud and stealing government property. She was sentenced Monday in Los Angeles by U.S. District Judge Manuel Real, who also ordered her to reimburse the Internal Revenue Service.

Between 2003 and early 2011, prosecutors said, Coronel obtained Social Security numbers for 20 children - claiming she had given birth to all of them at a Los Angeles hospital on Dec. 11, 2002.
