Since Peter Costello was 8 years old he allegedly was pretending to be retarded. His mother, Rosie Marie Costello had collected disability checks on his behalf for 20 years. Nice. There are actually people out their with real disabilities and we get people scamming the system pretending to be retarded. The depths of which people will sink just never ends.
Pete and Rosie Marie Costello were indicted in September on charges of conspiracy to defraud the government and Social Security fraud, and the case was unsealed Tuesday. The Vancouver pair pleaded not guilty in federal court in Tacoma on Tuesday after the case was unsealed. The traffic ticket was deferred.
Barbosa filed with the court two videos of Pete Costello taken this year: In one, he allegedly feigns retardation during an interview with Social Security workers; the other is of him contesting the traffic ticket in a courtroom earlier this year. (AP)
