WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A federal court has sentenced a second former New York policeman to probation for Social Security fraud. John Patrick Miller, who retired from the force in suburban Ramapo, also must repay about $137,000. Miller worked as a Nyack school security guard while collecting disability payments. His business partner, James Fox, received probation in November for the same crime. Fox is a retired New York City police officer. It is illegal to collect Social Security disability payments if you make more than a specified maximum income.
