A food stamp recipient was found to have committed food stamp fraud by failing to report her husband on her food stamp application.  The clear and convincing evidence, which included evidence that her husband held himself out as living at that address and that she had never initiated judicial or administrative actions to collect child support during his alleged absences from the house, demonstrated that he lived in her household.  Contrary testimony was not credible.
