An Atlantic City woman accused of trying to defraud FEMA following a nor'easter was sentenced on Tuesday.

But in that application Gicks failed to mention that her rent was already being paid by the Atlantic County Department of Family and Community Development.
Hicks received more than $15,000 from FEMA.
Hicks has been sentenced to 27 months in prison and has been ordered to pay restitution.
