Federal prosecutors on Thursday charged a Des Allemands woman with making a false claim for disaster relief after the 2010 BP oil spill.

Authorities said Melissa Ann Duran, 42, claimed she had worked as a seafood processor for a commercial fisherman for two years before the spill. They said she filed false documentation with the federal government.

According to the indictment, Duran received $33,800 to which she was not entitled. She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
