A Bristol man has pleaded guilty to stealing Social Security benefits and making false statements in an attempt to hide the thefts.

Seventy-one-year-old David Ross entered the plea Thursday in federal court in Abingdon.

Ross faces a sentence of up to 65 years in prison on all counts.

Federal prosecutors say Ross admitted stealing more than $318,000 in benefits that had been intended for his mother, who died in 1971. He told the Social Security Administration that his mother died in December 2010.
