State officials have found major problems with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, more commonly known as SNAP.

The state legislature auditor said in recent years more than $1 million in SNAP benefits were paid to people who are not eligible for the program. That includes people in prison, people who may have been receiving benefits in other states and people who earn more than $50,000 a year.

WWLTV legal analyst Chick Foret spoke on the Eyewitness Morning News Tuesday morning, saying he expects the cases to be easy to prosecute because the transactions were all made electronically.
